In response. Rebuilding the open web.
What if, instead of having a central website that people go to meet each other we could meet each other on each of the websites that we already visit? What if we could have a social layer over every website, with a timeline that shows us what our friends are publishing on the web? The only way to add content to this social layer would be to have an associated connected website that you write responses on or for you to actively post comment on the website you are on. The only way to join, is to be a verified publisher with a website. No comment box, No tell us how you feel, just good old fashioned publishing. A social network for websites if you will. In much the same way that Medium facilitates comment posts but keeps the content for itself, a comment post on this system would add an additional entry to a stream filtered to the hosting website for other users to read.

Can we all please stop using Medium now?
Just so we are clear. Medium takes your content, rolls it up into a pretty SEO friendly package for themselves and sells it. Oh, and turns us all into seals waiting for someone to throw us a fish in the process. If you are lucky, you might even get a cut. You know. Like the sort of cut artists get on Spotify. Profit share I think the cool kids call it.

So why is everyone still publishing on it? For what? More eyeballs? More attention? More reach?

Balls to that. If only one of you read this I’ll be happy. At least I own my own platform and I’m not being controlled by some monolithic publishing giant that can do whatever they want and sell whatever advertising they please ON YOUR HARD WORK.

The Cult of the Complex
In those days, whether from contempt for the deliberate, intentional (designed) limitations of HTML and CSS, or ignorance of the HTML and CSS framers’ intentions, many code jockeys who switched from table layouts to CSS wrote markup consisting chiefly of divs and spans. Where they meant list item, they wrote span. Where they meant paragraph, they wrote div. Where they meant level two headline, they wrote div or span with a classname of h2, or, avoiding even that tragicomic gesture toward document structure, wrote a div or span with verbose inline styling. Said div was followed by another, and another. They bred like locusts, stripping our content of structural meaning.

Khoi Vinh on How His Blog Amplified His Work and Career
Not that the work I do is all that important or memorable, but I prefer to think of it as “writing” rather than as “content.” And for me, that’s an important distinction. Content and writing are not the same thing, at least the way that we’ve come to define them in contemporary society. Content is inherently transactional; its goal is to drive towards some kind of conversion, some kind of exchange of value. This is why platforms just think of it all as “content”; for the most part, they’re indifferent to whether it’s good or bad writing, or even if it’s writing at all. It doesn’t matter whether it has any kind of inherent worth, whether it’s video or animated GIFs or whatever— so long as it’s driving clicks, time spent, purchases, etc.
