#8 — Visakan Veerasamy on how to make friends on the internet
Play • 1 hr 2 min

Li Jin and Nathan Baschez interview Visakan Veerasamy -- writer, thinker, creator who is using the internet to inspire "friendly ambitious nerds." He uses Twitter as a sort of second brain, organizing his ideas in an ever-expanding corpus of interlinked threads. He’s written several books that he sells directly to his fans on Gumroad, and, this year, he’s focusing on growing his YouTube channel.

In this interview, we talk to Visakan about:

  • His journey to being a creator
  • How he conceptualized his target audience — the “friendly ambitious nerd”
  • What software tools he uses
  • How he monetizes, and why
  • His take on Substack, Pateron, Gumroad, Youtube and eBooks vs Courses

Show theme music: Compassion by Stefan Kartenberg
