Richard Macmanus on “Medium” from Evan Williams and Biz Stone

We’re witnessing another sea change in Web publishing. From Pinterest at the beginning of this year to the launch this week of a new product from two Twitter founders, Medium, 2012 has been a year where the norms of publishing are being challenged.

So writes Richard Macmanus at ReadWriteWeb about a new platform for Web publishing.  But there have been books written in Twitter.   What if the same were to happen in Medium?  If the stream replaces the page, if topic maps replace authors, . . .

what will we mean when we say “book”?

Another and interesting perspective from which to view the browser vs app vs e-reader debate (see previous post, “Bookmark for your browser or your ereader?“).
