Medium Canned 50 People Because Big Corporations Are Paying For The Content We All Consume

Big corporations continue to kill the little guys. The latest victim of big corporations spending endless amounts of cash to advance their goals via articles, videos and other content is Medium, the content platform founded by Ev Williams who is also a founder of Twitter.  The company is closing its New York and Washington DC offices resulting in the termination of about 50 staffers. Those employees who were lucky enough to hold on to a job with the company in those cities will now work remotely. In a post titled "Renewing Medium’s focus", Williams lays out the changes happening at the company and why.
Upon further reflection, it’s clear that the broken system is ad-driven media on the internet. It simply doesn’t serve people. In fact, it’s not designed to. The vast majority of articles, videos, and other “content” we all consume on a daily basis is paid for — directly or indirectly — by corporations who are funding it in order to advance their goals. And it is measured, amplified, and rewarded based on its ability to do that. Period. As a result, we get…well, what we get. And it’s getting worse.
