A publication of the ecosystem working to deliver the next generation
of personalized reading interfaces
Medium is an open online platform where readers find dynamic thinking and where expert and undiscovered voices can share their writing on any topic. The new Readability Tech Channel on Medium is a forum for sharing the latest work of a cross-disciplinary readability research community. This research is key to shifting the focus from what is best for the population to what is best for the individual. Improved reading platforms will elevate reading speed and comprehension, increase reader engagement and change educational, career, and life opportunities.
About Medium: The best ideas can change who we are. Medium is where those ideas take shape, take off, and spark powerful conversations. We’re an open platform where 170 million readers come to find insightful and dynamic thinking. Here, expert and undiscovered voices alike dive into the heart of any topic and bring new ideas to the surface. Our purpose is to spread these ideas and deepen understanding of the world.
We’re creating a new model for digital publishing. One that supports nuance, complexity, and vital storytelling without giving in to the incentives of advertising. It’s an environment that’s open to everyone but promotes substance and authenticity. And it’s where deeper connections forged between readers and writers can lead to discovery and growth. Together with millions of collaborators, we’re building a trusted and vibrant ecosystem fueled by important ideas and the people who think about them.
