OneZero: The First 26 Months

Access every story published in the first era of Medium’s flagship technology and science publication

Hello, friends!

Today is my last day at Medium.

As co-founder and editor-in-chief of OneZero, I want to say thank you to Medium CEO Ev Williams and VP of Editorial Siobhan O'Connor for giving my team an unparalleled opportunity to tell important, mind-expanding stories about technology and science. I am deeply grateful for our freelance and platform writers—including our columnists and other weekly contributors (especially long-timers Angela Lashbrook, Owen Williams, and Eric Ravenscraft)—who forged this publication into something unique and special. Thank you also to our staff writers Dave Gershgorn, Emily Mullin, Sarah Emerson, Drew Costley, and Will Oremus, and our audience development trio Nadia Rawls, Peter Slattery, and Nate Goldman. Most of all, I bow in gratitude to our readers, who kept us going day after day.

I wanted to offer, in one place, links to every month of coverage that I oversaw (along with interim/launch editor Bryan Walsh, executive editor Michael Zelenko, senior editors Yasmin Tayag, Sarah Kessler, and Brian Merchant, and senior platform editor Megan Morrone), plus a handful of highlights. This is a monument to two-plus years of hard work that made a difference in the world. Thank you for being a part of it.
