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).

If you are looking for apps, Espresso plugins, or other software odds-and-ends that I’ve created you should check out my GitHub account or One Crayon (my freelancing site).

More interested in getting in touch? You can find me on Twitter, or send me an email through my One Crayon contact form.

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.
