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.

So this will be my take on the world, in less than 500 words or 500 seconds.  And who am I?  I’m Matt.  You can follow me on twitter here.  Say hi!
