When you are deciding on the name for a new channel, it is usually best if you choose one that is the same as the URL or username you will be using. Unless you’re Ray William Johnson, of course, but I think he’s the notable exception in this matter.
When I chose Mastering The Universe, I was under the impression that this username was not taken on YouTube. Of course, I was wrong. It’s the username of what appears to be either a small-time band, or a fan of small-time bands. It has also been in use for six years. Whoops.
So I’ve changed the name to Physics in Focus; which was as close as I could get to alliteration as possible. It’s hard to find two words that start with “P” and can be run together without sounding stupid, so I had to run the sounds together rather than the words. Either way, the title is here now so we’re going to have to run with it.
The first episode is due to go online during the summer. I have a team of physicists ready, willing and able to read over my scripts once I finish them (having studied alongside them when we were all at Durham helped me to find them - at least some things are falling into place) and I’m looking forward to getting started.
Look out for a “coming soon” video being released in the next couple of weeks, during which I’ll give you a run-down of the major topics we will be covering.
