Que significa qb?
Esta es una pregunta que recibimos todo el tiempo asi que aqui intentare explicarlo. Todo se remonta al principio del tiempo donde el portal existia solo en una idea que no estaba completamente formada aun, sin embargo ya teniamos el concepto del portal, sera una pagina donde podras ver las fotos de los eventos de psytrance en Guadalajara (esperemos que eventualmente podamos entrar gratis para tomar fotos). 

Teniamos aun un problema que nos impedia comenzar con nuestro proyecto, que nombre usaremos? como nos vamos a identificar?. Despues de viajar mucho y ver muchas opciones decidimos que up2trance era la mejor propuesta que teniamos en nuestra lluvia de ideas, pero este nombre tenia un grandisimo problema, cuando se pronuncia en espaniol suena: u-pedos-trance y obviamente no queriamos ser identificados como los "pedos" hehehe. Continuamos entonces con nuestra busqueda.

En algun punto nos dimos cuenta que era mas facil comenzar por definir un logotipo ya que la busqueda de un nombre no estaba dando buenos resultados y estaba tomando demasiado tiempo. Escogimos un cubo, una ves definida la forma del logotipo comenzo la lluvia de ideas pero ahora con un cubo como referencia, una idea llevo a la otra:

cubo en ingles "cube" que dividido foneticamente suena "cu" = "q" y "be" = "b"

Entonces quedo "qb" para representar el cubo del logo (bueno ese fue nuestro viaje, haha. Bien decian nuestras madres, ya no fumen de eso). Finalmente agregamos el trance que queriamos desde un incio, En ese momento nacia oficialmente qbtrance. Nuestro primer dia en linea como www.qbtrance.com fue el 27 de Enero del 2007.

What qb means?

We get this question very often so i will try to explain it's meaning here. Everything remounts back to the beginning of the time when this portal only existed in one idea and it wasn't completely formed yet, however we already had the concept for the portal, it will be a web page where you can see the pictures of the psytrance events in Guadalajara. (We hope that eventually we could get into these events for free to take the pictures).

We had yet a problem that was keeping us away to start with our project: what name are we using? how do we want to be identified?. After tripping a lot and consider a lot of options we decided that "up2trance" was our best bet we had in our brainstorming, but this name had a big but. When you pronounce it in spanish it sounds like: "u-pedos-trance" which phonetically sounds like fart-trance, so we didn't want to be identified like that hehehe. Then we continued our research.
 
After sometime we noticed that probably would be easier to start by defining a logotype since our seek for a name wasn't resulting good so far and it was taking way to long. We choose a cube, and once we decided the shape of our logo we get into a new brainstorm but now with a cube as reference, then one idea took to the next one:

"cubo" in english "cube" phonetically divided "cu/be" sounds like "cu"="q" and "be="b" and qb is not a common combination of characters so it will be easy to remember and easy to find us online.

qb represents the cube shape of the logo (well at least this was our trip, haha. our parents were right! we should stop smoking that). Finally we added the "trance" that we wanted since the beginning. In that very moment qbtrance was getting born officially. Our first day online as www.qbtrance.com was Jan 27th 2007.
