There are several websites that I have subscriptions to, like Zen Habits, Quillette, The Greanville Post and Lonerwolf. The investment of time to read them is reasonable.

Then I heard about Medium.com, and I subscribed. What a mistake. Not because there’s anything wrong with Medium.com. The problem is it’s too good. I could spend my life reading the articles. Most of them are well written and every category is so darn interesting.

This is from their masthead:

Medium taps into the brains of the world’s most insightful writers, thinkers, and storytellers to bring you the smartest takes on topics that matter. So whatever your interest, you can always find fresh thinking and unique perspectives.

What are we actually learning if all we do is scroll through Facebook updates and Instagram feeds? Do we agree with John Erskine who claimed we have a moral obligation to be intelligent? We might want to rethink our screen addiction and think about how dull life could be in the future if erudite conversation dies.
