Biography

Hello, I'm Alan. I'm News Editor for Alphr.com at Dennis Publishing.

Elsewhere, I've written for the likes of Wired, CNET, The New Statesman, iPad & iPhone User, Pocket Gamer, TrustedReviews, PC Pro, Expert Reviews, Stuff, Wearable and many more.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

I have! I've also replicated the focussed simplicity by using the iWriter app, which gives you just a white screen with no distractions.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Probably Damien Day from Channel 4 sitcom Drop the Dead Donkey, even if he is everything an ethical journalist shouldn't be...

What's your favorite social network?

Definitely Twitter, purely for the way news spreads so quickly (of course this has its own problems, but mostly it's a good thing)
