A Text Renaissance

There is a renaissance underway in online text as a medium. The Four Horsemen of this emerging Textopia are:

  • Roam, a hypertext publishing platform best understood as a medium for composing conspiracy theories and extended universes.

  • Substack, a careful and thorough ground-up neoclassical reconstruction of the age-old email newsletter.

  • Static websites, built out of frameworks like Jekyll or Gatsby (full disclosure: a consulting client).

  • Threaded Twitter, a user-pioneered hack-turned-supported feature that has wonderfully revitalized the platform.
