Introduction

For work I'm a freelancer writer and editor at MakeUseOf.com and occasional other places, plus I sing in a trio called Lotelles on the side (and the trio also sings with the Monestier Big Band).

I also write lots of my own blogs. The more professional blogs are Net Savoir, Vegemite Croissant, Bootstrap Your Life, Stage Left Events and my portfolio is at AngelaAlcorn.com. Personal blogs and other randomness about me can be found at Alcorn.id.au, Smange, Twitter, Facebook.

I share a lot of stuff I find online. For the best stuff, check out Del.icio.us, Cloud pics, Smange's food lust, my YouTube favourites and Pinterest. Flixter will show you movies I'm watching, Goodreads will show you what I'm reading, while Last.fm will show you what I'm listening to.
Work
Occupation
I write about tech tools with MakeUseOf.com, edit stuff other people write and I sing for weddings and other events.
