AirNet stops that flyaway feeling

ONLY CONNECT, wrote E M Forster in Howards End. So we did.

The NUJ freelance sector's latest initiative to connect people is AirNet, an e{mail discussion network for people doing journalistic work in broadcasting. (We stress that because it complements www. tvfreelancers.org, almost all of whose active participants are on the production side.) If the union is going to represent freelances in, say, the BBC, we need to know who you are. All of you. And what you want. And it will have immediate value for you, just as the networks for sub-editors, photographers and contributors to the Guardian and the Independent do. You can discuss rates, pass on shifts when you're double-booked, swap tips for dealing with bureaucracies.

Go now to sign up at www. londonfreelance.org/AirNet - and spread the word.
