Tom Becker's Home Page

Welcome to my web page!

This is just a placeholder. Look here for more cool stuff as soon as I figure out how to get the Gestetner going.

Home of the original Macintosh. Still a pretty cool place.

MacApp, the original application framework, and still the best. "It's back." Check out Steve Friedrich's MacApp Pit Stop.

This web page was created while listening to KFJC, 89.7 MegaHerz, a full cool 108 watts of power blasting from the left end of your FM dial. Usually I have no idea what they're playing, but it's always different and most of the time I like it. Check out the hip country with Joe Ed, "post-music" with Mr. Hate, psychedelia with Rocket J. Squirrel, industrial soap opera with Hades Ham Journal, instrumental surf with Phil Dirt, and lounge-core with Jack Diamond. The live remote broadcast from London was pretty cool, too.


The James Tiptree, Jr. Memorial Award is the first and so far only major award in Science Fiction to be named after a woman. And it's funded by bake sales. And it's publicizing incredibly good SF that you have never heard of.
