A leaderboard for Medium publications

Mubashar Iqbal- 2016 Maker of the Year.

Publish a thought in seconds anonymously.

Matt Baer- Founder,
I built this especially for jotting down thoughts quickly, wherever I am. 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

Create a blog with one text message (seriously)

David- startup fella, physicistish, techie
Textingway is something we've been having fun with, it creates a blog out of anything you text at it including photos. I'm not sure what people might use it for but I used it this weekend to take photos from Halloween and share them to my neighbor who refuses to use Facebook. It's like an instant liveblog. What do you think?
