How to read paywalled Medium articles without a membership

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I sometimes publish links to Medium articles. Often the articles are behind the Medium paywall. This gets the author a few bucks per month, paid by “Medium members”. I’m still a Medium member until March (I paid for one whole year), but I won’t extend my membership after that, mainly because I don’t get enough value out of the subscription (many articles are clickbait or do not interest me). But in itself I think it’s good that authors are paid directly by readers' money and not by tracking readers.
