I’ve checked it out and I don’t get it, and I am a quick study. See if your mileage may vary.
Twitter co-founders and former Blogger leaders Evan Williams and Biz Stone have unveiled a preview of Medium, which they describe as a new Web publishing platform.
With Medium, they aim to inject a dose of collaboration into Web publishing and distance it from print publishing practices. They also want to raise the quality of content.
“When you consider we’ve been publishing on paper for over 500 years and on the Internet for only a couple decades, it’s no surprise we haven’t figured it all out. It’s still early days,” Williams wrote in a blog post.
Medium, developed at Obvious, the pair’s newest company, is an attempt to re-imagine and rethink Web publishing from scratch with the knowledge and experience they have accumulated since Blogger’s launch in 1999.
