The short goodbye

We shut our Malaysia office today for the Christmas break. We’re back at work on the 4 January 2010 to start a new year with more breaking news and industry issues mixed and packaged together in true A+M style, and delivered to you in a (cross my heart) timely fashion.

It’s been a challenging year for everyone in business – media wasn’t spared. But as a young new brand which is still finding its footing but nimble enough to roll with the punches, we have a lot to look forward to next year.

Next year on the magazine front you will see a combined December / January issue to start 2010. It will hit desks in mid-January complete with new columnists and more content as well.

After that its back to the monthly format while A+M Daily returns on 4 January 2010.

2010 means we’re one year older but it also means we’ve got one year of local knowledge under our belt.

In the past year we’ve experimented with live blogging of news on and our Twitter (MarketingEds) account is still going strong. Expect to see more video from us and more.

If you’ve been reading magazines like Wired and Esquire you would have noticed the emergence of ads in augmented reality code – our very own October edition featured a nifty coded ad done by Arachnid to thank clients for voting it Digital Agency of the Year.

Cool stuff.

Speaking of cool stuff, today also marks the 20th anniversary of The Simpsons. Amazing. Its glory days may be long past but 20 years running on TV is a long time in anyone’s book.

So, on that note I’d like to wish you all happy holidays and look forward to meeting and writing about you for many years to come (D’oh!).
