This was a great piece that I will definitely be sharing with my friends. You gave a lot of good examples of failures but are there any examples of companies succeeding? Even if they are small niche companies? Like you said, Medium has become aware but hasn’t given a solution. I think of companies outside this industry like Netflix who are producing their own content to support subscriptions much like newspapers or magazines of yesteryear. Or product/service companies that start a publication solely about their industry. Is there any hope out there currently?
