Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 23/08/2017 pm31 18:53:00

INTERESTING. Medium will now pay writers. The revenue to pay writers will derive, not from advertising—Medium scorns it—but from member contributions. How Medium will pay writers Medium now publishes two kinds of content: public content, viewable by anyone; and private, members-only content. Medium members pay a small monthly fee; in return they get access to […] The post Medium to pay writers; program similar to Readability appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

It’s just lunch.

I HADN’T heard from her in years. Suddenly, there she was in my in-box. Tentatively proposing coffee. Maybe lunch. A dam broke inside me, releasing a flood of warm memories. Our first, tentative contact ten years or more ago. Getting to know each other. Endless, happy discussions about where this thing was going. Coming together […] The post It’s just lunch. appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

My Glamorous Life: Crossing the Continent

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 01/04/2017 am30 02:04:00

RAINY MORNING IN NYC. Put my kid, my ass, and my suitcase in an Uber. Dropped Ava at school, then crawled to JFK via every emergency-vehicle-blocked thoroughfare Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens had to offer. The roads were all rain and sirens and nobody getting anywhere. From JFK, flew across the country to surprisingly sunny […] The post My Glamorous Life: Crossing the Continent appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article
