I think engineers at Medium have done a great job with the platform, and complaints about all the adtech they've cluttered up their ui with were decisions I'm sure they weren't excited to make.
But as a platform, I'm tired of tech folks posting EVERYTHING there. Of all people it seems like those with knowledge of other platforms and the ability to post their own stuff neatly and statically should take advantage of that fact and stop using an obnoxious, paywalled service.
I just don't get the thinking behind it. I'll read a post about something I care about no matter where it is. I'm at a point where I'm LESS likely to read something on Medium. Not sure where other folks are at with that.
