As a relatively new Medium contributor who joined just months before all this paid membership and popular content craziness, I think this is great news. I joined Medium to get away from all the popular, fad, political, etc. posts on facebook, as a place to read and share literary content on-line. The past few weeks I have been reluctant to post. I was waiting to see what happens. So even without the details, I am pleased with this development and happy to work with this group. Thank you Heath.
