A Big Linky Map of Medium
An attempt at sketching out a bird’s eye view of the wide variety of different kinds of stories people are writing on Medium
The idea of building a big linky map of Medium is to help people explore the breadth and depth of stories on Medium. There’s a lot! And a lot of it is really good!
To view this map in a slightly different format, click here. The taxonomy for the map stored in a YAML file here. Feel free to suggest edits in Github or by leaving comments on this post. This is just a first pass that I put together in between doing a dozen other things, and could certainly be extended and improved. That’s why I put the taxonomy on Github, so that people who feel like something is missing, or incomplete, or wrong, can suggest changes.
Click around! Each of the links will show you the most read stories in that topic from the last year, top writers in that topic area, and related topics.

I’d also be interested in hearing about what these topic pages should display. Top publications? Stories sorted by some other metric? Share your thoughts!
