‘How to become number 1 on product hunt in 36 hours’ — I’ve seen headlines like this in the top 5 quite a few times. I’m a startup founder but I find them to be very tiring. It is also true that there are tons of life hack-y articles on Medium aimed at technocrats that view their life in terms of charts and bar graphs; which is obviously the wrong approach to living, at least like a human.
I think it’s more about the users on Medium and the kind of community we’re getting because of that. It is quite homogeneous; there are times of respite when there is great content but on the most it needs to be surfaced more often. I wish I had the answer but I don’t 😫
