My current situation is this: I'm subscribed to a lot of newsletters that curate content in the tech domain and almost all of them are behind a paywall! I want to get out of the Medium ecosystem, but I can't. Not everyone can be expected to pull off the FreeCodeCamp move (leaving Medium to their own publishing platform).

The iOS/Android/ChromeOS apps and Chrome extension open to a blank new note every time, so I don't lose thoughts in the process of recording them. There's no explicit "pipeline" interface, but you can create a shareable link to notes you write (all without signing up), so this might b… See more
