Medium’s mission is to deepen understanding of the world and spread ideas that matter. We’re building the best place for reading and writing on the internet—a place where today’s smartest writers, thinkers, experts, and storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; and a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.
