In reply to: Bandai cracked the wearable tech code in 1996 – Eli Mellen – Medium

I was combing through my domain name’s history on the Way Back Machine this evening when I found a link back to something I wrote and posted to Medium waaaaaay back when. I remember being really excited about Medium when it was new, and exclusive…focused on writing and writers, and the experience of writing and reading.

…now, now when I click on an interesting sounding headline on Hacker News or Reddit or some other linkblog thing and it opens to Medium I rarely read it…I just close the tab and move on. What once felt like a haven for writing and reading now feels user hostile and slimy.
