An Open Letter to Mark Starlin

You did it again — at least I can say I knew you before you made the big time.

I thought you would enjoy this unaltered screen shot (other than my red notation) of the featured articles on the Medium home page.

Since Roy and others commented on seeing it, you now know when I use the word “unaltered,” I mean unaltered.

Here’s a link to Medium’s Curation Guidelines.

Here’s the exact quote that applies to this unexpected event:

Stories about Medium: We don’t curate stories about Medium.

Could it be that they just loved the positive tone of your article?

I hope so, because it’s better than my alternative End of the World theory.

Enjoy your 15–30 minutes of fame, my friend, because I just checked my home page again (2:15 a.m. PDT) and the story disappeared.

It’s a good thing I stayed up late; otherwise, the only witnesses would be the people of New Zealand, some early risers in Brazil, and a few penguins off the coast of Greenland.

Congratulations!
