The shift from print to the web as well as the shift to user-generated writing has affected both music and music tech writers though often in different ways. For awhile outlets for music writing were shrinking unless you started your own blog or site. But outlets for music tech writing have gradually grown with the rise of digital communication. Now Medium's bridging the gap a bit with the upcoming launch of a digital music mag, aka music blog, on its platform. One music and tech writer, Tyler Hayes, who's using platforms like Medium has recently been writing more for FastCoLabs giving music tech a stronger presence on Fast Company's platform.
