hypergene / media solutions

About > Chris Willis

What's a 'hypergene'?
The term is used in geology to describe minerals or mineral deposits that formed near the surface by "descending solutions." I had no idea that’s what it meant when I bought the URL.

To me, hypergene describes a trait I know certain people have. Those who can be ignited by a good idea and have maintained the ability to stay childlike in their curiosity.
