NEWSPAPER NEWSPAPER NEWSPAPER!
I just screamed Newspaper at you. Digitally.
Apparently, that’s also what Medium is trying to do now.
They’re hoping that internet people remember what a Newspaper is.
I’ve got an idea! Let’s strip all of the color and identity out of the brand and visual design we’ve carefully built up over the last several years. Rather than combining elements of old media and new media, let’s just double-down on old media…you know, that thing we’re trying to crush into the ground?
Such a good idea.
No wait it’s dumb.
First with clapping, and now with this other change for the sake of change, Medium is just further vindicating my decision to start my own stupid web site.
I bet more dumb is coming. Yay?
