It's so ridiculously refreshing to not read a blog post on Medium. It's a testament to humanity that people still host this information on their own servers perhaps years after it is no longer relevant to them, and anyone, anywhere, can access it, read it, learn, and pay it forward. Medium is a (para)site on the Internet.
