Inside the World of Polymaths Who Make the Internet Go ‘Round LISA JEWELL BOOKS, NEW YORK: 31 October, 2016 – Inside the books, video and podcast world, we have our own Polymath: one of the smartest, funniest, and most passionate creators on the internet, the internet’s most talked about author and social media celebrity, and a man with the kind of power to change the world, if he chooses to.
He’s the author of books, videos, podcasts, and the award-winning book, The Internet Is Not A Theater.
We sat down with him to learn about his life, his writing, and how he’s reinventing the medium to help change the future of creativity.
First, what is your life like?
I’m a polymath, but I also love being a part of the internet.
My husband, who’s a professional writer and has worked in the field for over a decade, also has a career in the industry.
Our two children are also involved with the business side of things, and we have a blog, thelion, which we started to host a couple of years ago.
My family and I have a real love of the web, but also have a genuine love for the idea of writing books.
I’m just really passionate about the idea.
We also love doing video, and podcasts.
I love creating and producing videos and podcasts, but in order to do that, I need a good editing team.
I also like to do a lot of work on the design side, and that’s where I’ve spent most of my time.
I try to do things the way I would like them to be done, and I try not to make changes or take shortcuts.
But if I do, it’s because I know the audience is going to love them.
How did you come up with the name Polymath?
I was talking to a friend of mine, who had been thinking about a title for a while, and said, “Polymath is an acronym for Poly-Mind.
If you think of this as a book, it would be a poly-series.”
That was a big inspiration for me.
What do you want people to know about you?
I’ve always been interested in things that were hard to explain, like science, math, and other things that can be hard to understand.
When I first started out, I was very shy.
But I think I was just trying to get through it and make myself comfortable.
I remember going to the mall with my mom, and thinking about how people would get into trouble if they saw me on the street, and she just started laughing, and it’s like, “Oh, no, no.”
She knew I had the talent, and wanted me to be part of this world.
I have never really given up on what I want to do.
My life is pretty much based on doing my thing.
I think that’s a really important part of what I’m trying to accomplish.
What are your favorite places to visit?
I love New York City, but if I have to choose between Paris or New York, I would say New York.
I’ve been to Paris several times now, and Paris is just so beautiful.
I always want to go back there, and see the history of the city, the architecture, and then go back to my home.
I would definitely love to go to New York someday.
Why did you decide to become a social media star?
I really like the idea that you can get in a room with someone, get them excited about something, and start getting them excited again.
I was always curious about social media, and decided to create my own channel to do the same thing.
So I started with YouTube, and went on to Facebook and Twitter.
I started doing podcasts with my wife, and now I’ve started a podcast, and my first book is coming out in April.
I like to write a lot, but my focus is on writing, which I think is really important for a person of my stature.
What’s your favorite quote or quote from someone who inspired you?
“You have no idea how hard it is to be a successful writer.”
– Stephen King (author of Carrie)
