Evan Williams Aims on Medium After Twitter and Blogger

Evan Williams is a famous name in Silicon Valley. He is the founder of Blogger and co-founder of Twitter. Both of his products are a big hit. Now he thinks very big with his Medium. It is "an intelligent algorithm that suggests stories, primarily based on how long users spend reading certain articles. Like Pandora did for music discovery, Medium’s new intelligent curator aims to improve the ol’ human-powered system of manually scrolling through the Internet and asking others what to read." But Medium is a tablet specific product.

Medium was introduced one year before for writers that want to write long content mostly. Just after a few months of its launch, Medium has become so popular that its famous writers 'are making front-page headlines and snagging millions of views.'

TechCrunch has taken an interview of this famous entrepreneur in which he talks about his plans to take on Media. He wants "to shift our daily reading habits away from consuming incremental news bites and towards engaging with enlightened ideas curated by an intelligent algorithm." To think achieving such goal is like living in a fool's paradise. But we are talking about Evan Williams, proud founder of Blogger and Twitter. 

This successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur is one of the Internet pioneers. Blogger helps armature writers to compete with professional writers. Twitter gives everyone 140 character space to convey their ideas. And now Medium completes his three-product cycle with aim of providing better ideas into the world by making viral news more informative and detailed.

Evan Williams said in his interview, “I think more people would be in a better place if more people shared their ideas. It's also an optimistic stance to say that we can build a system where good things can shine and get attention. And there’s an audience for ideas and stories that appeal to more than just the most base desires of human beings.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
