Me.dium is no more...
Me.dium was replaced by something called OneRiot on the 11th of November and the Me.dium social map that I liked so much is no more. So now I have to go through my web sites and remove all of the defunct Me.dium code and track down what will happen to Me.dium accounts.
According to Jennifer Lauren, Me.dium data "is no longer active and is contained in offline backup files that are not connected to OneRiot in anyway [sic]."
If you want your data and your Me.dium account to be deleted, you are going to have to send Jennifer an email.
Note the reviews at the FF add-on site since Me.dium disappeared - there have only been a few reviews posted since the change, and they are all negative:
I tend to agree with commentator who says that all of the positive reviews that are reviews of the Me.dium application should be deleted (or OneRiot should have its own download page). Weekly and total download counts should also be reset to zero as at 11 November 2008.
Will I be installing OneRiot? Well, I won't be installing the toolbars or the Pulse Checker. I'll only install the Search Provider (which adds OneRiot to Internet Explorer's built in search box) because I can see a potential research benefit if OneRiot's promised ability to feature the most popular results makes it easier to find the most current content and conversations out on the net (the biggest problem with Google and other search engines is sorting the recent from the old, and the noise and spam from the useful conversations). But, that being said, a lot of the stuff that I work on is really obscure. I wouldn't be doing my job well if I end up simply following a crowd - that's not the way to stay on the cutting edge.
I've gotta say, too, that I'm going to really miss the social map.
