Hi, I’m Ian Beck and this is my blog. You can tell it’s mine because my picture is up at the top of every page.
I tend to write about whatever I am interested in at the moment, which in the past has ranged from Mac OS X software to webOS app development to fiction to random personal tidbits. Basically, my life is a tangled mess of fiction, opinions, irony, and code. So is Beckism.com. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I currently earn my food-and-shelter money making people happy by developing excellent websites, but my pie-in-the-sky goal is to make a living wage writing (preferably writing novels, possibly writing apps, probably by doing a little bit of everything).
About the site
Beckism.com has been my personal online space since 2002, although its roots go back to 1998. It runs on WordPress and I publish articles using the excellent MarsEdit. I craft my longer fiction in StoryMill, Scrivener, or Word. The design and various other images were created in Photoshop or Acorn, and I do all of my coding in Espresso.
