The Risa Tigue Gen (and Sime) Re-Use Award

" doesn't make good economic sense to use a Gen only once." -- Risa Tigue, AMBROV KEON

Sime/Gen fandom operated primarily via snail mail for almost 20 years before
going online in the fall of 1996. Many longtime fans, including some of the
fanzine editors, were essentially cut off from mainstream fandom by the shift.

This award honors Sime/Gen fans who have given their old computer systems to
further the cause of other Sime/Gen fans' gaining email and Web access, and also
the recipients of those computers for giving email and the Web a game try and,
well, for just being themselves!

The following people have won Risa Tigue Gen (and Sime) Re-Use Awards:

Kaas Baichtal for lending the twice-recycled 486 laptop to Karen Litman. (1998)

Karen Litman for the gift of the much-used IBM P/S-2 system to Donell Meadows (1997)

Mike Giroux for the gift of a fine IBM system to Karen Litman (1997)

Kaas Baichtal for the gift of a 486 laptop and printer to Kerry Lindemann-Schaefer (1997)

Karen Litman, for lending the use of her old Tandy 1000-EX to Jay Schiff (1996)

Naomi Gail Lichtenberg for the gift of a Kaypro computer to Beth Phillips (1996)

Katie Filipowicz-Steinhoff and Jacqueline  Lichtenberg,
who conspired to give Katie's old IBM P/S-2 system to Karen Litman (1996)
