The White House Joins Medium

President Obama discusses American innovation on Medium, a platform which encourages people to share ideas and stories that matter.

We're really excited to announce that the White House joined Medium, a new, self-publishing platform that encourages people to share ideas and stories that matter. And today, ahead of his visit to a tech hub in Los Angeles, the President published his very first post. The post talks about the new American economy and the innovations that are driving it forward -- and, specifically, what that economy looks like for Millennials:

"You may have graduated into the worst recession since the Great Depression, but today – for all the challenges you’ve already faced, and after all the grueling work it’s taken to bounce back -- you’re in the best position to break into the newest sectors of the new American economy."

On Medium, you can expect to hear more from President Obama and his administration on issues from technology and innovation to education and the economy. Here at the White House, we're continually looking for new and innovative ways to connect with people where they are. That’s where Medium comes in – and why you can find us on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and more. 

So, check out the President's post and then follow along on Medium. We’re excited to begin the conversation with you.
