I find it hard to put my finger on exactly why, but I find there’s something not quite right about the Medium experience.
It’s unsettling. It’s something to do with the clean, uniform feel. There are no rough edges, it’s too neat and tidy. The typography is too perfect. Everything seems ‘in hand’ and ‘under control’. Very uncomfortable indeed.
No doubt there is good stuff on there but I don’t have the patience to stick around. It’s like being in a clean room and yearning for the real world outside.
