Exciting news.

Tony Stubblebine is now the new CEO of Medium. Ev Williams stepped down but will remain with the company as chairman of the board.

So before I go any further, let me put out a full-hearted invitation. Help mold the future of Medium by telling me what is important to you. This is exactly what Medium’s response feature is for. I am listening.

That’s what I want to hear.
