 +
** Sebastian: Give me more time to cover this {{w|List of waste types}}, this {{w|Index of waste management articles}}, this {{w|List of waste management concepts}} and this {{w|List of solid waste treatment technologies}}. Also {{w|reuse of excreta}}, {{w|compost}}, {{w|anaerobic digestion}}, {{w|mechanical biological treatment}}, {{w|Ship disposal}}, {{w|Demolition waste}}, {{w|Illegal dumping}}, {{w|Waste picker}}s, {{w|Waste hierarchy}}, {{w|London Convention on the Prevention of Marine Pollution by Dumping of Wastes and Other Matter}}, {{w|OSPAR Convention}}, {{w|Oslo Dumping Convention}}, {{w|Barcelona Convention}}, {{w|Global waste trade}}.
 +
** Sebastian: Add a sample questions section.
 +
** Sebastian: Add a separate column on the type of waste.
 +
 +
* [[Timeline of recycling]] (expansion started on 3 February 2020)‎
 +
** Vipul: Include themes such as the changes to the relative costs and benefits of recycling versus trash, the introduction of single-stream recycling✔, China's "National Sword" policy✔ and its impact on global recycling✔, the UN's work on solid waste management, impacts of plastic waste on ocean plastic pollution. See also [https://ourworldindata.org/plastic-pollution Our World in Data on plastic pollution] and [[wikipedia:plastic pollution|plastic pollution on Wikipedia]] for some data on the latter.
 +
** Vipul: For the timeline of recycling, it would be good to add a separate column on the type of material being recycled (metal, plastic, glass, paper/cardboard) so that it's easier to understand trends by the type of material.✔
 +
** Sebastian: Give me more time to cover this {{w|Index of recycling articles}}, this [[w:Category:Recycling by material|Recycling by material list]], more on {{w|Blue box recycling system}}, {{w|Recycling codes}}, {{w|Computer recycling}}, {{w|Appliance recycling}}, {{w|Automotive oil recycling}}, {{w|Battery recycling}}, {{w|Bottle recycling}}, {{w|PET bottle recycling}}, {{w|Drug recycling}}, {{w|Fluorescent lamp recycling}}, {{w|Reclaimed lumber}}, {{w|Mobile phone recycling}}, {{w|Paint recycling}}, {{w|Concrete recycling}}, {{w|Cotton recycling}}, {{w|Refrigerant reclamation}}, {{w|Timber recycling}}, {{w|Vegetable oil recycling}}, {{w|Downcycling}}, {{w|Repurposing}}, {{w|Land recycling}}, {{w|Recursive recycling}}, {{w|Upcycling}}, {{w|Precycling}}, {{w|Freecycling}}, {{w|Dumpster diving}}, {{w|Freeganism}}, {{w|Container-deposit legislation}}, {{w|Ethical consumerism}}, and {{w|Vehicle recycling}}.

=== Returned with feedback ===
 +
 +
* [[Timeline of NTT Docomo]]
 +
** Add charts for stock price and market cap
 +
** The Google Finance chart for stock price shows a drop in 2002; is this because of a stock split or a change in calculation methodology? It would be good to include details of a stock split if there was one
 +
** Add a separate row for the London Stock exchange delisting (it is currently mentioned as an aside in another row)
 +
* [[Timeline of 5G]]
 +
** Somewhere in the big picture, maybe talk about the two main bands of 5G: millimeter wave, which is faster but has less range, and sub-6GHz, which is quite similar to 4G LTE and only slightly faster.
 +
** Then, in the various rows of full tiimeline where applicable, clarify whether the 5G rollout uses millimeter-wave or sub-6GHz
 +
** Talk about dynamic spectrum sharing and its use to recycle 4G spectrum for 5G. Also, talk about how 5G is being built largely on 4G infrastructure and 5G phones often use 4G LTE for some aspects e.g., see https://www.cnet.com/news/no-5g-isnt-going-to-make-your-4g-lte-phone-obsolete/
 +
 +
* [[Timeline of malnutrition]]
 +
** " I'd like to see more coverage of malnutritions and severe nutrient deficiencies, specifically, when they were first identified, and when the nutrient for them was identified (e.g., scurvy being identified as due to vitamin C deficiency, rickets being identified as due to vitamin D deficiency, etc.)"
 +
* [[Timeline of Bitcoin]] (Expansion started on 22 December 2019): Really great work on this! A few minor points
 +
** Add a column in the full timeline for country or region, so that we can sort by it and get groups of events by country. Many events won't be country-specific, so this field will be blank for those rows.✔
 +
** Add a section in the big picture that gives a big picture by country, which gives a summary of how Bitcoin evolved in each of the main countries of action (United States, Japan, South Korea, China).
 +
** For the full timeline rows involving subreddits, the subscriber counts should be updated to reflect current values, rather than the counts as of June 12, 2017. Please include the date (e.g., January 5, 2020, if that's when you do it) and replace June 12, 2017 by that date.
 +
** Update the Mentions on Google Scholar and GitHub repositories sections to go up to 2019
 +
** Add charts for Bitcoin price✔, Bitcoin Wikipedia pageviews✔, and Google Trends✔
 +
** Add a logarithmic plot so that the price movements before 2013 can be seen in the chart.✔
 +
** Vipul: "Are there any charts of transaction volume or network hash rate? I think such charts might be helpful to contrast with price charts"
 +
* [[Timeline of GiveWell]] (Expansion started on 2 December 2019) 
 +
** '''You can defer this to the end, but I'm listing it first because you may want to keep it in mind as you make the other changes''': I think the big picture might be too detailed, and also has a non-uniform structure. What I'm thinking is to have two sections in the big picture, one for the really big picture and one for highlights by year (the latter is like what you currently have). For the really big picture, I am thinking of these time periods: 2006-2008 (founding, controversies, initial struggles), 2009-2010 (site visits, growth in money moved, stabilization), 2011-2012 (injection of Good Ventures money, standardization of annual cycles), 2013-2014 (move to San Francisco, growth of GiveWell Labs), 2015 onward (separation of GiveWell Labs, renaming as Open Phil, more growth of GiveWell the organization (minus GiveWell Labs/Open Phil)). Basically I want this big picture to give a zoomed-out story and not be too bogged down in specifics of money moved.
 +
** I suggest removing the growth of GiveWell tables for now, because we should ultimately get a newer version of this table from the data in Org Watch. But we can wait till we have better data from Org Watch before removing.
 +
** It might be worth adding Wikipedia view and Google Trends✔ data similar to that in [[timeline of Bay Area Rapid Transit]].
 +
** Using guidance at [[domain names in timelines]], add rows for the registration/transfer to GiveWell of givewell.net✔, givewell.org✔, and givewell.com✔. I believe GiveWell first started out at givewell.net only, then acquired givewell.org and moved to that as their main domain, and more recently acquired givewell.com which they redirect to givewell.org
 +
** Maybe add a row for creation of the Wikipedia page✔
 +
** GiveWell used to have a wiki -- talk about the launch ✔/✘ and later removal of the wiki?
 +
** Cover the 2019 board membership changes https://www.givewell.org/changes-in-board-membership  ✔
 +
** Maybe cover more past board membership changes✔
 +
** More staff changes should be included✔. In particular, the joining of Alexander Berger✔ and Natalie Stone, the joining of Chelsea Tabart✔, the eventual departure of Holden✔ and Alexander✔ as they switch fully to the Open Philanthropy Project, the departure of Chelsea Tabart✔.
 +
** Cover the October 2019 office move from San Francisco to Oakland (unfortunately the only reference for the date of move is the GiveWell November 2019 newsletter, but this doesn't seem to be visible on the web).✔(I used a response by Catherine Hollander, and used "announces" instead of "first announces", in case there is a previous public announcement of the move)
 +
** Cover more of the discussion/debate with Giving What We Can[https://80000hours.org/2015/06/donating-to-giving-what-we-can-is-higher-impact-than-donating-to-givewell-recommended-charities/][https://www.givingwhatwecan.org/post/2012/12/some-general-concerns-about-givewell/], particularly in the initial years
 +
** Cover the evolution of GiveWell's cost-effectiveness analysis https://www.givewell.org/how-we-work/our-criteria/cost-effectiveness/cost-effectiveness-models (there may also be some more blog posts not linked from that page)
 +
** Cover to a greater extent the recognition of GiveWell by donors of various sizes, when they donate using GiveWell recommendations. For instance, Mr. Money Mustache https://www.givewell.org/how-we-work/our-criteria/cost-effectiveness/cost-effectiveness-models and maybe Jeff Kaufman/Julia Wise, Allan Saldanha https://www.theguardian.com/money/2019/nov/09/i-give-away-half-to-three-quarters-of-my-income-every-year also perhaps mainstreaming of GiveWell recommendations through their inclusion in holiday giving guides in mainstream media publications
 +
** Cover the launch of the GiveWell mailing list on Yahoo! groups✔, and the eventual sunsetting of that and moving to Google Groups, and then the launch of the GiveWell newsletter (which I think is a separate mailing list)
 +
** Sebastian: Improve the sample questions section.

Not ready

Returned with feedback

  • Timeline of NTT Docomo
    • Add charts for stock price and market cap
    • The Google Finance chart for stock price shows a drop in 2002; is this because of a stock split or a change in calculation methodology? It would be good to include details of a stock split if there was one
    • Add a separate row for the London Stock exchange delisting (it is currently mentioned as an aside in another row)
  • Timeline of 5G
    • Somewhere in the big picture, maybe talk about the two main bands of 5G: millimeter wave, which is faster but has less range, and sub-6GHz, which is quite similar to 4G LTE and only slightly faster.
    • Then, in the various rows of full tiimeline where applicable, clarify whether the 5G rollout uses millimeter-wave or sub-6GHz
    • Talk about dynamic spectrum sharing and its use to recycle 4G spectrum for 5G. Also, talk about how 5G is being built largely on 4G infrastructure and 5G phones often use 4G LTE for some aspects e.g., see https://www.cnet.com/news/no-5g-isnt-going-to-make-your-4g-lte-phone-obsolete/
  • Timeline of malnutrition
    • " I'd like to see more coverage of malnutritions and severe nutrient deficiencies, specifically, when they were first identified, and when the nutrient for them was identified (e.g., scurvy being identified as due to vitamin C deficiency, rickets being identified as due to vitamin D deficiency, etc.)"
  • Timeline of Bitcoin (Expansion started on 22 December 2019): Really great work on this! A few minor points
    • Add a column in the full timeline for country or region, so that we can sort by it and get groups of events by country. Many events won't be country-specific, so this field will be blank for those rows.✔
    • Add a section in the big picture that gives a big picture by country, which gives a summary of how Bitcoin evolved in each of the main countries of action (United States, Japan, South Korea, China).
    • For the full timeline rows involving subreddits, the subscriber counts should be updated to reflect current values, rather than the counts as of June 12, 2017. Please include the date (e.g., January 5, 2020, if that's when you do it) and replace June 12, 2017 by that date.
    • Update the Mentions on Google Scholar and GitHub repositories sections to go up to 2019
    • Add charts for Bitcoin price✔, Bitcoin Wikipedia pageviews✔, and Google Trends✔
    • Add a logarithmic plot so that the price movements before 2013 can be seen in the chart.✔
    • Vipul: "Are there any charts of transaction volume or network hash rate? I think such charts might be helpful to contrast with price charts"
  • Timeline of GiveWell (Expansion started on 2 December 2019)
    • You can defer this to the end, but I'm listing it first because you may want to keep it in mind as you make the other changes: I think the big picture might be too detailed, and also has a non-uniform structure. What I'm thinking is to have two sections in the big picture, one for the really big picture and one for highlights by year (the latter is like what you currently have). For the really big picture, I am thinking of these time periods: 2006-2008 (founding, controversies, initial struggles), 2009-2010 (site visits, growth in money moved, stabilization), 2011-2012 (injection of Good Ventures money, standardization of annual cycles), 2013-2014 (move to San Francisco, growth of GiveWell Labs), 2015 onward (separation of GiveWell Labs, renaming as Open Phil, more growth of GiveWell the organization (minus GiveWell Labs/Open Phil)). Basically I want this big picture to give a zoomed-out story and not be too bogged down in specifics of money moved.
    • I suggest removing the growth of GiveWell tables for now, because we should ultimately get a newer version of this table from the data in Org Watch. But we can wait till we have better data from Org Watch before removing.
    • It might be worth adding Wikipedia view and Google Trends✔ data similar to that in timeline of Bay Area Rapid Transit.
    • Using guidance at domain names in timelines, add rows for the registration/transfer to GiveWell of givewell.net✔, givewell.org✔, and givewell.com✔. I believe GiveWell first started out at givewell.net only, then acquired givewell.org and moved to that as their main domain, and more recently acquired givewell.com which they redirect to givewell.org
    • Maybe add a row for creation of the Wikipedia page✔
    • GiveWell used to have a wiki -- talk about the launch ✔/✘ and later removal of the wiki?
    • Cover the 2019 board membership changes https://www.givewell.org/changes-in-board-membership
    • Maybe cover more past board membership changes✔
    • More staff changes should be included✔. In particular, the joining of Alexander Berger✔ and Natalie Stone, the joining of Chelsea Tabart✔, the eventual departure of Holden✔ and Alexander✔ as they switch fully to the Open Philanthropy Project, the departure of Chelsea Tabart✔.
    • Cover the October 2019 office move from San Francisco to Oakland (unfortunately the only reference for the date of move is the GiveWell November 2019 newsletter, but this doesn't seem to be visible on the web).✔(I used a response by Catherine Hollander, and used "announces" instead of "first announces", in case there is a previous public announcement of the move)
    • Cover more of the discussion/debate with Giving What We Can[6][7], particularly in the initial years
    • Cover the evolution of GiveWell's cost-effectiveness analysis https://www.givewell.org/how-we-work/our-criteria/cost-effectiveness/cost-effectiveness-models (there may also be some more blog posts not linked from that page)
    • Cover to a greater extent the recognition of GiveWell by donors of various sizes, when they donate using GiveWell recommendations. For instance, Mr. Money Mustache https://www.givewell.org/how-we-work/our-criteria/cost-effectiveness/cost-effectiveness-models and maybe Jeff Kaufman/Julia Wise, Allan Saldanha https://www.theguardian.com/money/2019/nov/09/i-give-away-half-to-three-quarters-of-my-income-every-year also perhaps mainstreaming of GiveWell recommendations through their inclusion in holiday giving guides in mainstream media publications
    • Cover the launch of the GiveWell mailing list on Yahoo! groups✔, and the eventual sunsetting of that and moving to Google Groups, and then the launch of the GiveWell newsletter (which I think is a separate mailing list)
    • Sebastian: Improve the sample questions section.

Note: Vipul use ✘ for works you are not interested in (quicker than using strikes).


Subwiki projects

Subwiki purpose: "Mostly for in-depth exploration/understanding of specific topics, but still not in any sequence (so people can jump directly to a specific page)". Read this: [33]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [34]
  • A table of plasmodia
