What's Going On At Medium — Late last night, Medium CEO Ev Williams published a blog post about the company's future.

In the post, Williams writes that "Medium is not a publishing tool. It's a network.

Verizon Likely To Retain TechCrunch And Engadget — According to multiple sources inside AOL, Verizon plans to retain most of AOL's editorial properties once the $4.4 billion acquisition is approved later this summer. Currently, Verizon has no plans to spin off several of the high profile media properties within its Brand Group, including TechCrunch, Engadget, MapQuest, Moviefone, Crunchbase and Alpha.

In Search Of Humanity At TechCrunch Disrupt — At TechCrunch Disrupt's Startup Alley, no one looks at your face. Instead, gazes rest about six inches to a foot lower. Badge height. At Disrupt, the badge - or more importantly, the text on the badge - is all that matters. And why shouldn't it?

Lol. Glad that's out of our systems.

Facebook Is Basically Time Warner Cable — This week, the research firm Piper Jaffray issued its biannual teen research report, revealing some seemingly bleak news for Facebook: Only 14% of teens consider Facebook their most important social network. This is noteworthy in that the figure is down 19% since 2013.

Lines Are For Losers: The Anti-Hype Strategy Of The Apple Watch — On Friday morning, you'll be able to wander into an Apple Store an try on a watch, but you won't be able to walk out with it on your wrist. In fact, you won't even be able to buy one there - you'll have to go online for that.
