Steve B. from the OSFDA will be presenting Dictionary Lookups: Parsing HTML with Emacs Lisp:

Steve goes into the Emacs trenches and shows how to use elisp to reformat HTML markup from the Free Dictionary (one of the finest open dictionaries and thesauri on the Internet), so now you can directly query it when you’re at a loss for words in Emacs.

After the presentation, the code will be released for free download to anyone wanting to use it. Steve is an avid digital currency application developer, and has used Emacs since 1982 (including Gold Hill lisp…)
