If you put your programming article up behind the paywall on Medium.com instead of on your own blog, you are not a true hacker, and will not hear the horns of freedom when you die, and the blinkenlights of Das Komputermaschine will not shine above your grave.
@kirch also, the True Hackers shall roll their eyes, and upon being confronted with the "let's make things official" popover, close the tab in disgust.
That's why I support platforms like publish0x. They pay both the writer and the reader and no one gets to put any content behind paywalls
