I have been looking at Medium because folks mentioned it in the Denton discussions yesterday. I found some things I liked, and wanted to create an account so I could "recommend" them or share them back here. You have to use Twitter or Facebook to create an account. I have an semi-anonymous Twitter account, tied to a gmail account that I never use. I decided I was willing to sacrifice that, but I went to sign up on Medium the signup wanted me to grant Medium some Twitter permissions. Fuck that noise. I hate Facebook. I hate Twitter. Now I hate Medium.
