OK, so medium.com does look [flexible, user-driven], with perhaps the trick being to provide a "connector" page like https://medium.com/italian-ai-stories for a community like Reinforcement Learning. I'm not sure of features that differentiate it from WordPress, but from my short attempt at using WordPress I found some annoying dead-ends (can't remember specifics). My main desire was for an easy ability to [update, add, delete] pages with a simple bash script, based on editing a "main copy" on my computer, with the ability to automatically post edited emails (mostly remove email addresses, but also to trim them down).
from-computer-bits-to-human-creativity-and-back - Very nice article.
Extensions to videos (animations or "reality") are obvious, but curiously you don't :
24Aug11 Confabulation Theory for Cognition: "Next Plausible Sentence" survey -
Confabulation is a biologically-inspired theory for cognition that was developed by Robert Hecht-Nielson of San Diego. It is described in an overview fashion in Section I, and in much greater detail in his 2007 book "Confabulation Theory: The mechanism of thought" As a gross overview, Confabulation Theory assumes that information is held within "attribute classes" in roughly 4,000 thalamocortical modules (carrying information about "mental object attributes") and roughly 40,000 cortical knowledge bases (establishing "meaningful co-occurrences" between thalamocortical modules). Confabulation DIFFERS from Bayes theorem in statistics, and these simple differences make confabulation a superior form of reasoning for the real world, where information is often incomplete, erroneous, or event misleading (predator – prey). The "Next Plausible Sentence" exercise as presented in Part II of this paper was a critically important eye-opener for me, and gives a very strong "hands on" sense that while technology has a very, very long ways to go, it is a very, very long ways further along than commonly thought.
(This survey and compilation was finished in Nov2008, but was cleaned up and first posted in Aug2011, re-posted with changes 10Mar2012).

Medium has a nice combination of what you mention. Basically, you can register and make a few personal articles on your own account. For example, this is a post I made on my own:
If you click on my profile you can see all of my articles.
On top of that, you can open "publications", which are collections of articles, such as the AI Italian Stories I linked you, or the TensorFlow blog by Google:
You can send your story to a publication or keep it in your personal account. On top of that they have a paywall for people with pay subscription to Medium; in that case, if you put the article behing the paywall you get something whenever people visualize it (never did that honestly).

"THE IN CODICE RATIO (ICR) PROJECT" - Wow, that's cool! I wonder if the Greeks will allow the Romans to apply that to the huge papyrus recovery project for the lava-entombed library of Pompeii? (I haven't heard anything about that delicate project for years).
