Almost immediately after I saw Series, I deleted Instagram from my phone
Not because I feel Instagram is useless, but because Medium reminded me what want to consume and create most— the written word.
I saw another story on here which implies Medium is going downhill:
“This used to be a place where we smart people could hang out and read smart people stuff!”*
To me, Series lowers the barrier for entry TO a higher level of writing and thinking. My favorite comparison was Ev Williams’ (the founder of Medium)
He said something along the lines of:
“Imagine if every time you wanted to read a book, you had to flip through and remember what page you were on. That’s the current state of the Internet.”
Series will make long-form and high-level content MORE engaging, not less.
I am 100% on board.
Thanks, Jason for giving me the chance to expand on this.
