A few years back, the game designer Jesse Schell gave rise to the idea that every game rests on four pillars: aesthetics, mechanics, story, and technology. Visual stories on the web are subject to remarkably similar forces. That thought line has led me to think about Medium this way: The platform takes care of the technology and mechanics; the aesthetics and story are up to writers and photographers like our small team—and like you. Awful convenient stuff, considering that’s what we do best. (via A New Medium on Medium — Stories Worth Seeing — Medium)
