After three years on Medium, Signal v Noise goes indie again:

…we’ve grown ever more aware of the problems with centralizing the internet. Traditional blogs might have swung out of favor, as we all discovered the benefits of social media and aggregating platforms, but we think they’re about to swing back in style, as we all discover the real costs and problems brought by such centralization.

It’s great to see David, Jason, and company take their blog back again. For a long time, Medium seemed like a great place to be. The design and typography were lovely, their discovery mechanisms were pretty great, and boy can they drive readers to an article.

But… there’s no place like home.
