What is Medium?

Medium is a different kind of place on the internet. A place where the measure of success isn’t views, but viewpoints. Where the quality of the idea matters, not the author’s qualifications. A place where conversation pushes ideas forward.
Medium is a tool in the Hosted Blogging Platforms category of a tech stack.
