Welcome

This is Rickipedia, a comprehensive repository of information about the ever-evolving Apple prediction game played on Connected by hosts Stephen Hackett, Myke Hurley, and Federico Viticci.

“Better than, maybe, anything else I’ve ever seen on the Internet ever”
— Myke Hurley, Connected #344

✨ What's new

September is when Relay FM campaigns for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and this year the sites that make up the Connected Informatic Wikiverse — Rickipedia, Pickipedia, and new addition Quizzipedia — are all co-fundraising under Relay FM's banner in support of this incredible organization.

🎁 Incentives

  • A $60 donation will earn you exclusive Relay FM wallpapers and a macOS screensaver by James Thomson of PCalc fame which an inside source has described as "the most James"
  • For $100, you get that plus a Relay FM Sticker Pack
  • If this campaign raises $250 or more, I will be implementing a Rickipedia "API" (read: static data from the wiki in JSON format)

I don't do any analytics on these sites, so I honestly have no idea if anyone else even uses or reads them. If you do, and you like this particular brand of enthusiasm, completionism, and amateur statistics, I'd very much appreciate if you donated via my link. I'll be able to see some concrete evidence that others like what I'm doing, and much more importantly, you'll be supporting an amazing cause.

About

This exercise in nerdery about nerdery was put together by me, Jason Biatek (pronounced "bee-attic", he/him).

Corrections and additional information are more than welcome. Any wiki editing controls that you may find won't work — your edits will just be in your browser and will disappear on reload. Instead, open an issue on GitHub preferably, or you can also email me at [my first name] at [my last name] dot net. One easy task that anyone can do is look at this page and let me know if any of these picks have since come true.

This page is built with TiddlyWiki, which is a nifty single page wiki tool with lots of options for taking little bits of information and composing them together in different ways. When I realized that, my mind jumped to the many, many little bits of information in The Rickies, and I just had to try it out.

As a single page wiki, the page URL doesn't change as items are opened. To link to specific items, use the menu in the top right of each item and select "permalink" to create a link to just that item, or "permaview" to create a link to all items currently open. There is also a "static link" which is a lightweight, JavaScript-free version of the item.
