And the pool gets bigger almost every month, which suggest to me that they’re getting new subscribers every month, and that the model works. If Medium went this route, they could let their readers decide what’s worth paying for, rather than squeezing the platform into a one size fits all box that forces both readers and writers to follow some preset meme. It’s not too late, Medium! Stand up for literary freedom!
