Media3 will be away for a while

Media3 will be taking a break for a while from the week of July 3, which is when our current season ends. Like other shows on TV3, we're funded by NZ On Air for a specified period of time -- in our case, 20 weeks -- and then we re-apply.

Until now, through the Media7 years, we've been a team show that's on most weeks of the year, so this is something of the end of an era for us.

I don't know exactly when we'll be back, but it's safe to say that I'll be more than usually available for the next few months, so feel free to send any interesting work my way. (Uninteresting but lucrative proposals will also be very seriously considered.)

I'm already thinking about what we can put in the season-ender. Ideas for dramatic cliffhangers involving Jose are warmly solicited. 

In the meantime, this week's Media3, looking at the NSA revelations and the impending closure of Computerworld and PC World New Zealand, two specialist technology titles with an important heritage, is here on demand. Or you can watch it on the old-fashioned television tomorrow at 10.25am, on TV3.
