IT’S FINALLY HERE!
As was the case last year, and the year before that, we faced fairly significant delays on the road to the publication of the 2016 Cubed Circle Yearbook. It wouldn’t be the CCN without technical and logistical difficulties, and as this is our biggest issue ever in terms of number of articles and article word count, it is in hindsight not all too surprising that the publication of this year’s edition was delayed by around 3 weeks. But, it isn’t February yet, and we sincerely believe this to be the very best issue we have ever produced. As in 2014 and 2015, there is no plain text copy of this issue, simply due to the amount of formatting that went into the yearbook.
Regular readers of the newsletter will know that it has also been several months since the publication of our last regular issue. We hope that this yearbook will serve as a new beginning or reboot of sorts for the newsletter, and we will be experimenting throughout the first quarter with new formats, distribution methods, schedules, and so on. However, this will be elaborated on further in the coming weeks. For now, we would like to proudly present what may very well be the best issue we have ever produced, the 2016 Cubed Circle Yearbook.
