Mark Allen Ludwig (August 5, 1958 - 2011) was a physicist from the . and author of books on computer viruses and artificial life. Ludwig spent less than two years as an undergraduate at MIT, but was reputedly still able to get into the Physics doctorate program at CalTech on the basis of recommendation letters from his past MIT teachers where he was a classmate of Stephen Wolfram in Richard Feynman's course on advanced mathematical methods for physics. He died from cancer at age 51.

The last decade has seen significant shifts in the roles of editorsin the newsroom. Pagination has moved page composition from thebackshop into the newsroom, placing additional responsibilities oncopy and design editors. Newsrooms have become more collaborative,with emphasis on cooperation between various departments, andbetween copy editors and assigning editors. The biggest change isthe growth of the Internet as a medium for news delivery. Mostnewspapers have accompanying Web sites, where breaking news can beposted for audiences long before the next print edition goes topress. In a sense, it’s a return to the days when newspaperspublished multiple editions throughout the day—only now,it’s done online.

In Modern News Editing, authors Ludwig and Gilmore havecreatively reworked Gilmore’s classic textbook to fullyintegrate editing for online publication and editing for print.Whether the medium is a print newspaper or an online news site, thefunction of editors remains the same: to guide a news story fromits inception to its publication. The fundamentals are stillnecessary. Is it news? How should it be approached? How should itbe presented? Does the grammar pass muster? Is style consistentlyfollowed? Do headlines and photo captions capture reader interests?What are the needs and desires of the audience? Have theresponsibilities of the news media to promote a free andself-governing society been met?
