Hello everyone! My name is Qian Bao and welcome to QuantumBytes, a website that shares my commentary and analysis of recent trends in the world of media and technology. This website also acts as a portfolio for my podcast and video productions.I am a digital media specialist who specializes in social media, web design, multimedia production and online journalism. I received my Honours Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Digital Media from the University of Toronto in 2018, and is expected to complete Master of Journalism at the University of British Columbia in 2020.
As an Apple user and an admirer of Steve Jobs and Johnathan Ive, I sincerely appreciate the aesthetics of minimalistic design. Minimalism has always been the basic principle for my professional work and modern lifestyle.
Personally, I am passionate about technology. The digital revolution has enabled creators like myself to unleash our creativity. For me, communication in the 21st century is about interaction and engagement through web 2.0. It’s about delivering quality content through creative and interactive methods that are enabled by the media technologies we have. I am currently hosting a tech themed website named QuantumBytes (http://quantumbytes.me) where I share commentary and analysis of recent technologies and trends in the tech industry.
I am also very interested in video and audio production. Music has been an important part of my life ever since I was a kid. Although reading music sheet isn’t my forte, I am still able to play the piano by memorizing the melodies in my mind. This skill allowed me to composed and rearranged several pieces of music during my high school years. Filmography, along with photography and drone piloting, on the other hand is considered a recent hobby. By observing closely at the editing of YouTube videos, I am constantly improving my videography capabilities. I am looking forward to produce extensive amount of media contents in the coming years.
My current choice of filming equipments are the Fujifilm X-T20 with 18-55mm f2.8 Lens, the DJI Mavic Pro. I also use an iPhone 7 and/or Huawei P20 with DJI Osmo Mobile 2.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
