Thanks for this helpful overview on upcoming Medium changes, J.J. I agree that many of them are going to frustrate writers striving to build their reputation on the platform. You nailed how I feel about the direction Medium's going when you said, "But I can’t help but feel a disconnect between what they’ve stated and what we’re seeing in the betas." No writer wants their name or image erased. And many readers like you (and me) appreciate having stories delivered to them in concise packages, not as streaming content.
