I'm now at the point where, if I see a link to an article on Medium, I go 'mmm, yeah, maybe not'. Even if the summary makes it look like an otherwise interesting article.

It's because of Medium's aggressive paywalling; I'm now locked out from reading Medium articles. Also, I now realise that the point of using Medium is just to make money, so it's a clickbait flag.

Just in case anyone is thinking that using Medium makes your article more likely to be read. For me, it does the exact opposite.


Any folks visiting HK?
Hit me up!
My time is available for the world.

Hey #fediverse devs, please consider implementing #Libravatar in your apps:

Like #Gravatar, it's a way for users to change their profile pic/ avatar images in one place and have it propogate across other servies they use. But unlike Gravatar, it's decentralized and not controlled by Automattic. It is fully #FreeCode and compatible with #OpenID though.
