#29 - Mark Armstrong of Longreads

April 6, 2015

Mark Armstrong is the founder of Longreads, a website (and Twitter account) that helps people find some of the best long-form writing on the web. Mark and I talked about why he started Longreads -- initially as a hashtag -- in 2009, what he's done with it in the six years since, and how his work has changed since the site was acquired last year by Automattic, the parent company of Wordpress. We also dug into the question of attention and time on the web and what he thinks the future of funding online story-telling might look like.
