A much better post than my previous throwaway one, but about much the same thing…
…and not by me: 13 ways of looking at Medium
What I find particularly interesting about Medium (as discussed in the aforelinked article) is the fact that organises it’s content into what it calls ‘collections’. Actually, not just that it organises content this way, but that the primary view on the content is collections. Not people. Not chronology. Not location. (Though I’m still have trouble separating what Medium call ‘collections’ from ‘categories’ in this context).
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the assumptions that we have around content organisation online, Medium appears to be something of a shift. A shift to where exactly? Who knows… Anyway, read the article, it’s good.
