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

Browse the extensive selection of scores and stats, a breakdown of picks by topic, a copy of The Bill of Rickies with a changelog, search the database or just the picks, and more.

✨ What's new

With the Apple event season wrapping up a bit earlier this year, it has been a quiet time for The Rickies. But Rickipedia hasn't been lying dormant. As promised, thanks to generous donors contributing to The Connected Informatic Wikiverse's St. Jude fundraising effort, Rickipedia now sports a shiny new API! Okay, maybe API is a bit of an overstatement... but it has never been easier to access tons of data from Rickipedia with tools like Shortcuts. For example, why not ask Siri Who's The Chairman, or ask her to Show Me The Tricky? Perhaps you'd like a quick way to see Ineligible Picks?

Check out the documentation here, and we can't wait to see what you do with it.

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.
