Dave Winer: Publish Anywhere But Medium

Dave Winer continues his role as self-appointed Cassandra (and I do not mean that in a pejorative way) with his essay Anywhere But Medium. “If Medium were more humble, or if they had competition, I would relax about it. But I remember how much RSS suffered for being dominated by Google. And Google was a huge company and could have afforded to run Google Reader forever at a loss. Medium is a startup, a well-funded one for sure, but they could easily pivot and leave all the stories poorly served, or not served at all. I’m sure their user license doesn’t require them to store your writing perpetually, or even until next week.”
