I'm a software engineer who has been building web applications for years. Maybe that's why I wondered. Hmm..... no clues?
Oh.... you are the creator of Smedian. So you had to first look at how to get data about Medium for that creation. Good job!
Ah.... digging deeper (feel like I'm stalking, but hey, if you don't fess up, I'm forced to investigate) on JavaForHumans.com (which looks cool) says you once worked for Medium. Okay, that makes sense.
