Inside Medium: A look at Evan Williams' next act in online publishing

  • Jan 13, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Since its launch about a year and a half ago, Medium has won plaudits for the quality of the writing that appears on the site and the clean and beautiful way stories are presented there. But commentators have also struggled with what to make of the site founded by Evan Williams, the entrepreneur behind Twitter and Blogger. Is Medium a blogging platform to rival Wordpress? Or a publication that aims to compete with startups like Gawker and Buzzfeed?

Come to Medium's offices to hear members of the company's editorial, design and engineering teams discuss the thinking behind the site and plans for its future. Speakers will include Jim Giles, founding editor of Matter that was acquired by Medium, Pete Davies from product science and UX and design lead Dustin Senos.

      It's just blank maybe it was just live stream and not recorded, any where I can access today's recording or even slides?
