My thoughts on Medium.com -- it's a centralized self-publishing platform, intended for longer-form entries than Twitter, somewhat like Tumblr or Blogger. In fact, Medium was started by guys from Twitter and Blogger.

However, a notable difference from Tumblr or Blogger is that Medium is more focused around crowd-curated collections, as opposed to following individual blogs.
Notes (Medium’s pseudo-replacement for comments) are nice that they’re in context – but that also has a downside – I currently often enjoy reading comments on an entire post and being able to sort/view the ‘best’ comments.
On the editing side, you obviously need to be registered. It’s a WYSIWYG interface with a medium (sorry) amount of formatting available – but no font faces, font colors, font size, underlining, etc. We’ve previously had similar restrictions in a CMS I managed, but some people always wanted exceptions.

In the end, Medium offers a pleasant interface and some possible platform takeaways. Of course, none of that makes them a guaranteed success when it comes to getting an audience…

The way in with Android 4.1 alerts me about what time I need to leave my house to arrive somewhere on-time is pretty awesome. I guess I will no longer have an excuse for being late…
