Algorithms don't understand good writing

For a story she wrote Thursday for Medium, Erin Biba will earn 2.5 cents per click. She called bullshit on media algorithms that consider clicks, not the importance of a good writer.

I love the idea of a new world of media that exists solely on the Internet. And I really, really want to be part of it. But I also want to pay my rent and feed my cat. I don’t think that’s a lot to ask. In fact, I’m gonna go ahead and say I’m pretty irritated that I have to ask at all. Actually, screw that, I’m INSULTED by how much you’re trying to pay me. Or not pay me.
