Update on Medium’s Paid Collection Experiments

About a year ago, we began hiring people to run some collections for Medium. We deputized them as publishers and editors-in-chief of their own mini-publications on Medium, free to hire and pay (or not) their own writers and run their collections more or less by their own lights. We basically told them to go out and build the biggest audience they could, and we’d pick up the tab.
