I don’t understand if, for you, Medium is “open” or closed web. I have mixed feelings about it. It’s true that you as a blogger are hosting your content in someone’s platform, but so does wordpress.com… Also, here you can use CC licenses by default. Could be that we need more of a “spectrum” for defining websites, from closed to open, instead of a binary definition?
