Medium published its first full-length novel, and it's a Silicon Valley satire
Medium, the blogging platform developed by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, today published its first full-length novel, which you can read now for free.
The book in question is The Big Disruption by Jessica Powell, Google’s former head of PR. The novel is a satirical take on life in a major Silicon Valley company, if the description on its Medium page is anything to go by. It also has a kickass opening line: “The only animal left standing was a one-eyed sea lion named Fred.”
The book is exclusive to the platform, meaning you can read it for free if you’re either a Medium subscriber or haven’t met your limit of free articles for the month. In an interview with Recode‘s Kara Swisher, Powell said a friend sent Medium the manuscript:
Powell also said it was part of an effort by the site to produce more longreads content. It’s possible Medium could be a new outlet for aspiring novelists who have something to say about the tech industry. According to Fast Company, Powell will be donating the proceeds from the book deal to #YesWeCode.

Decorum is an unfashionable word but it has a radical core | Aeon Ideas
Cicero gives us the best sense of decorum’s richness. He did more than anyone in ancient Rome to develop the concept, and it sits at the heart of his ethical and rhetorical theory. Cicero defined decorum not as an inflexible code of conduct, but as the fit between an action and a moment, or between words and a rhetorical situation. To speak decorously is to say precisely what the moment demands.

Asking whether words have decorum is another way of asking what this circumstance and this audience call for.

Arguing over Trump’s decorum, or lack thereof, is about asking who counts – who is included in, and excluded from, ‘the sense of the community’ to which decorum appeals.

Etruscan Art | Essay | Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum of Art
“While some 13,000 Etruscan texts exist, most of these are very short. Consequently, much of what we know about the Etruscans comes not from historical evidence, but from their art and the archaeological record.”
