I would love to steal (copy, reverse engineer, whatever) Medium’s code and start a mirror company which has a public position of maintaining three curation staffs instead of one:
…the grey staff being populated by high thinking individuals who have no culture war affiliation and instead focus on curating articles critiquing the culture war itself.
I have two personal contacts who were deeply embedded professionally in social media, one of which might be able to turn such a trick, but he can’t due to some strange priors on a similarly themed project that failed and got embroiled in a kind of IP conflict with some developers, so he’s out.
If you know anyone else willing to jump into this space, who has the appropriate background and connections, let me know. I know how to run a business, manage, and have the vision, but all that’s garbage without both a strong technical component and investors, and I have neither.
