Notd has created a new kind of public media network, which relies on readers and not ads. Anyone can publish a stream of notes, which can be articles, photos, blog posts, etc., and readers get to subscribe to the stream as if it was just a section or column on a news site. Streams can be professional news or personal information. There are community streams that let members post notes for each other, and no personal information is collected. Stream owners can charge for subscriptions, and get 80% or more of the revenue. You can read more about Notd at https://notd.io/about, but the best way may be to just check out some of the popular streams here.
