    1. A Substack-based intellectual sphere will be intensely, if unintentionally, hostile towards new blood. Magazines and newspapers solve this problem by packaging new authors that might appeal to their readership in the same issues as big names. The blogosphere solved this problem through comments and trackbacks, which allowed bloggers and their readers to discover other quality writers worth following. There is no mechanism for this sort of thing on Substack.

      I do see people mentioning other people's newsletters, so the discovery is there, but barriers are higher.

    2. The great question is whether this new internet will be able to sustain meaningful intellectual exchange. By default, Substack splits intellectual activity into vertical silos, with readers at the bottom and authors at the top but no horizontal connections between them.

      Barriers to discussion are higher, but to what extent this improves quality enough to make it worth it is unclear. I like interlinking, trackbacks, and comments, but maybe annotation is better? I wonder how Hypothesis works on Substack posts?
