Medium has launched a new membership program. It’s $5 and I feel like Ev Williams and I would get along really well:
We invite you to join us as a paid member and to help support an ad-free platform that delivers the right type of content: the type that can only be created when independent writers and publishers are rewarded based on value rather than clicks. Medium will remain free and open for anyone who wants to share ideas with the world.
Like the idea but for an awesome music website you may be reading right now? We’ve got a similar plan and motto.
