This is an experiment about medium-ness. Think stuff that falls in between a tweet (small) and a full essay or post (large) or between a soundbite (small) and a full podcast (large.) I think that medium-ness can be really great for a couple of main reasons:
- it imposes a happy limitation on the person making something, and therefore promotes the creation of more things in a shorter time. It discourages perfectionism. It promotes the creation of things with just enough substance and incentivizes distillation and focus.
- it makes writing or audio quick and easy to consume, but not trivially so, for the reader or listener.
