Another model Medium could look at (look at me dragging the gods into this convo) is the way Amazon…

Maybe they’re starting off paying up front but will merge to the Amazon thing if things work out? Based on the very little I know about the switch to paid content, it sounds like they are definitely interested in veering away from pushing quick changing trendy writing and to more durable quality work that can be read over and over again without losing its grab?

Sorry; I’m having a hard time formulating a functional response because OMFG I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT AMAZON WHAT EVEN THAT IS SO MUCH MONEY WTF WTF AAAHHHH k bye
