Williams’ Medium Relaunches Matter

Screen Shot 2014-06-18 at 4.57.38 PMSolidifying its status as a publisher to be reckoned with, Ev William’s long-form portal Medium has relaunched Matter, a digital magazine focusing on “in-depth journalism about the ideas that are shaping our future.”

According to Fast Company:

“‘The relaunch of Matter is our most ambitious publishing effort to date, but it’s likely not our last,’ Williams wrote in a Medium post. He described a somewhat shifted vision for Medium, which has evolved from a low-barrier blogging platform to a virtual publishing house with off-the-shelf tools available to all. Digital magazines like Matter, operating under the Medium umbrella, will serve as trailblazers for the broader community of contributors.”

Matter was originally a Kickstarter-funded project meant to publish science and tech news, but that scope has now widened. Medium acquired Matter in 2013.
