Ji Xiaohua, well-known as Jishisan, an alias pronounced as G13 in Chinese, is like a pop star among Chinese young intellects.

11 years into Biology study, 3 years popular science writing and 3 years running an NGO for popular science, G13 recently started an internet business, Guokr.com. He said, “Guokr isn’t just an internet company. We take the internet as its main board. New businesses may come out later on. Guokr.com is meant to be social but more a medium.”

G13 started freelance writing as a Ph.D student. Right after graduation he gathered writers he knew and founded Squirrel Group, an NGO offering writings on popular science through blogs.
