Dear friends: After this afternoon, we won't be publishing online until we resume daily bulletins on 6 January. In fact, other than 3 and 4 January, when we'll have a skeleton crew on duty, our offices are closed for the holidays.
We just finished up the massive December-January issue, which should arrive in emagazine form and in subscriber mailboxes as 2014 begins.
So we're looking forward to the break, and we hope you get a similar respite in order to have yourself a merry little Christmas—or enjoy whatever observances you observe.
As a parting gift, here's a compilation of the most-read content from campaignasia.com this past year. Thanks for reading, and we'll see you in 2014.
