I would not recommend anyone to use Medium for a new publication without custom domain support. Medium has proven themselves an excessively volatile partner to publications already. Their whims will change again. You need an escape hatch.

Also: "If you already have a custom domain on Medium, nothing will change for you for the foreseeable future, and your domain will continue to work as expected". What a shitty way to sow doubt amongst existing publications. Signal vs Noise is OUT the second this changes.

And the strong implied suggestion that this will change, Medium's "foreseeable future" seems to be about a fortnight, should we prod all publishers to have their contingency plans ready to go. What a shame.

Three years ago we explained why moving Signal v Noise to Medium made sense to us. I'm very happy with the time we've spent on the platform so far, but the choice wouldn't look so simple today.

After further review, we're going to be leaving Medium at some point in the near-to-mid-term future. Thanks for all the fish, ! You built a beautiful typewriter, the early community was awesome, and I respect trying something different. Shame about the VC pressures. Adieu!

Why not build one via Basecamp? Write in Basecamp -> one click publish.

Changing publishing platforms can be pretty disruptive, this must have been a difficult decision to come to.

Does "near-to-medium future" here mean a fortnight as well?
