this is just a quick message to all readers to let you know that Delimiter is now officially on holidays, and to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
In terms of our holiday hours, from today (20 December) until 5 January, Delimiter will not be publishing any new articles. There just isn’t much news during this period, and we’ve found that readers don’t come to the site often seeking news. Basically, you’re on holiday, we’re on holiday — it’s a whole holiday thing. Sure, if Telstra bought Optus, we’d report the news, if it was truly that urgent. But don’t expect much in the way of analysis.
From 6 January until 12 January, we’ll be in ‘ramp-up’ phase. This means we’ll gradually be ramping up the number and quality of stories we publish. We’ll be back to 2-3 per day. Delimiter 2.0 will also restart publishing in this period. After 12 January we’ll be back in full flight.
The spare time will be spent in the Delimiter office playing PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (no PlayStation 4 or Xbox One yet), heading to the beach with the family and catching up on all the movies we missed during the year. The photo above isn’t an actual photo of our closest beach — but it’s not too different either. Plus, we’ve got a stack of science fiction novels to get through.
We hope we’re not the only ones slowing down for Christmas! It’s been a blockbuster year for Australia’s technology sector. Next year promises more of the same. We need a break in between to catch our breath. Thanks for all the comments and engagement this year — it’s been a massive one. Let’s hope for an exciting 2014 ahead.
In addition, best wishes from Delimiter to you and all your friends and family. Have a great holiday and stay safe over the Christmas and New Year period!
Editor + Publisher, Delimiter
