Bookmarked Wikipedia: AppleScript update by Mark GardnerMark Gardner (Wikipedia)
Update infobox: remove unused & invalid values, update current AppleScript version & official website after updating Wikidata; still need to verify earliest macOS release that included this version & update Script Editor page as well

Made my first Wikipedia edit in five years, this time to update some basic info on AppleScript. In the process I learned how to update the AppleScript entry on Wikidata, Wikimedia’s data­base for pop­u­lat­ing such things.

Hi Luke! You should def­i­nite­ly check out the Perl posts on my blog (which is most of them 😉)!

I’m busy this week host­ing my par­ents’ first vis­it to Houston, but I didn’t want to let this Tuesday go by with­out link­ing to my talk from last week’s Ephemeral Miniconf. Thanks so much to Thibault Duponchelle for orga­niz­ing such a ter­rif­ic event, to all the oth­er speak­ers for com­ing togeth­er to present, and to every­one who attend­ed for wel­com­ing me.

After a lot of pro­cras­ti­na­tion, I’ve decid­ed my talk for this week’s ePhEmeRaL mini­conf will be Cunningham’s Law: A Year of Being Wrong on the Internet, or «prêch­er le faux pour savoir le vrai.»

The event starts at 8:00 AM CST on Thursday, November 18; you can find out more about it includ­ing the full sched­ule and a time zone con­vert­er here.
