• Who am I?

    I am Qrystal; or at least, that's my dot-name! Har har. (My name is really Crystal, but that's not as internet-searchable; hence, switching the C for the little-used letter Q.)

    I am here because I enjoy writing. I do this mostly for myself, but I also have a passion for helping others learn things from the things I write. Now that I am done my Ph.D. in Physics, I am stepping away from academic research so that I can indulge in some creative ways to share my knowledge and inspire the appreciation of scientific thinking in others. I am also working as a tutor, which is one of the jobs I've most enjoyed doing in my life so far.

    It didn’t take much to get [it] up and running. Just an initial idea — which [he] couldn’t get out of his head — a domain name, and a few smart people. All told, about $30 was invested in the project, including the snacks … purchased to fuel developers during the coding marathon.

    Ready, set develop: How to create a six hour startup.

    This is incredible! I needed to know this! Just last night, laying in bed, I had another of my many brilliant ideas for internet startups. It really must be time to seize the day!

    (Maybe that thought will encourage me to finish my thesis as soon as humanly possible…!)
