About Angela Long


The Word, the World, and the Internet

 

Welcome to Angela Long’s professional website. I’m A Long, and this is my word. (Or sword, if you read it another way).

My profession is news journalism, and these days I study the effects of delivery of news and current affairs going online. What does the internet revolution mean for the way people get their news about their society? As a media ethicist and ‘digital philosopher’ I try to reach some conclusions about the effect of the internet on news – apart from the big bad monetisation issue.

The site consists of information about the work I do, and how to contact me if you need those sorts of things done. I can run a newsroom, edit a magazine, teach a journalism course or train newcomers to the field in journalistic skills.

Content curation means making decisions about online news provision. With many different forms – words, video, audio, interaction – available now, it’s all the more important that websites have discriminating and experienced people selecting and editing content.

Content audit means a review of material, principally the words, on others’ websites and internet platforms. As an expert on journalism and message delivery, I can review the material presented online for clarity and attractiveness.

My journalistic articles are on the next page. My Twitter name is Alongsword.
