Is the idea to have more publications that post under the name of that publication (the way The New York Times does, for example, where the writer does not benefit from claps)? Because to that, I say, Boooooooo.
Or do you want to have publications as they are, where writers can make money, but with Medium also investing in the hard work of editors like Dan Moore and Kay Bolden?
