    Is Medium supposed to be a good website for technology articles? It’s support for code is quite poor. As far as I’ve seen it does not support syntax highlighting, some authors even upload pictures of syntax highlighted code. I haven’t really understood why developers keep on publishing there.

      The editing interface is nice, so that may be it. Personally I do my writing in Draft, and if I want to post it somewhere (for now) it goes to Svbtle, which has better code support than Medium. I wonder if there’s a cultural thing drawing people to post more on Medium because of some perceived brand value for the service.

      I’d rather host my own blog and have the freedom to make it exactly how I want. Now if only I could find the time to make one…
