The two are linked, though. You specifically mention your startup at the end, it’s in your bio, and the things you are talking about could be corrected with your app. You’re not developing an app to track cookie recipes, you’re developing an app to add quality back to life. It’s an admirable thing to do. Something I agree with quite wholeheartedly. But two things being linked — your app and your article — cheapen the effect of what you wrote. That’s my issue.
And you’re right, Medium is rife with people pushing their startups. It’s really aggravating.
