Some people have asked me how IrPt got its name. The truth is, it’s a rather serendipitous story. Back in 2014, I was traveling on an intercity bus to visit my grandparents in China. I wanted to connect my iPod to my dad’s Blackberry for internet access, but when the phone prompted me to set a password, the phrase “iridium point” popped into my head out of nowhere.

At the time, I was already a self-professed chemistry nerd, and I later discovered that Iridium Point is a term used in calligraphy to describe the tip of a pen. I can’t quite recall if I was passing by a pen store at the moment, but the name stuck with me.

Iridium Point is often shortened into “IrPt” as Ir and Pt are neighbours on the periodical table. Both are sometimes used to describe massively popular music (which I don’t really pursue at the moment), and you can make out the pun “I repeat”.
