Interesting topic and i do agree that transparency is needed. Like HackerNoon asked for consent before moving.
Though all these recent moves made me think whether Medium is listening or not. These good platforms for bloggers are moving out from medium and are they taking any steps to preserve it?
Personally, i really do not like medium for code and gist point of view. They do not have code highlights and no single gist file usage.
Time will tell where these are going to lead us but best is to have our own blog and then post to any other place.
Medium, hope you are reading and listening...
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
