Amy Poehler, because who doesn’t love Amy Poehler?

Today is the our last day working formally with Medium on @ Medium collection (tagline: “Worth Your Time”). We’ve loved bringing awesome content by and about awesome women to you for the past 17 months (why 17? Why not?) and we appreciate all the love you’ve showered on us in the form of shares, recommends, comments and extravagant gifts. We will still be keeping the collection active but will be switching our focus back to newsletter, relaunching this summer though probably in the part of summer mistakenly referred to as “fall” (what is the deal with that anyway?). In any case, sign up here!

We’re pretty proud of the work we published, even in this last week: Nithya Das with Hotwheels Are For Girls Too plus Feminist Comedy #SquadGoals about how Amy Schumer lifts up her friends (also our first and only post from a gentleman, The Comic’s Comic Sean McCarthy who graciously agreed to republish it here), and so many good posts from people like Christina Wallace, Anthea Watson Strong, Marianne Cooper, Susan McPherson, Ally Downey, Nisha Chittal, Ruth Ann Harnisch, Kara de Frias, Amy Webb, Kate Miltner, Sloane Davidson, Whitney Joiner, Sally Kohn, Rebecca Soffer, Merici Vinton, Adaora Udoji, Aubrey Sabala, Bridget Todd, Morra Arons-Mele, Amelia Showalter, Anjali Kumar, Jenna Wortham, Jules Spector, Nono Osuji, Kathleen Warner, Marci Harris, Jessica Jackley, Anastasia Liapis, Heather Barmore, Rebecca Odes, Shonda Rhimes, Cindy Gallop, Tanya Tarr, Jody Porowski, (with one of my all-time favorites — I Sold My House To Fund My Company — come on, she sold her HOUSE to fund her company!) and many more.

We will continue to publish good stuff over here, but like anything else on the Internet, it will change and morph and grow and iterate. It’s the Internet. Don’t get too comfortable. After all, death lurks everywhere.

Happy random Saturday in August! We’ll see you on the other side.
