** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Pageviews''' (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&start_date=2018-07-16&pagepath_regex=Netflix over 5,000 views since the last significant update on 2018-07-15] ([https://contractwork.vipulnaik.com/tasks.php?receptacle=Timeline+of+Netflix&matching=exact list of all work on the timeline]). It therefore clearly qualifies per the heuristic of "at least 1,000 views since the last significant update."
 +
*** '''Time since last update''': The timeline has not been significantly updated for two years, which therefore passes the filter "don't update timelines more frequently than once a year."
 +
*** '''Qualitative outdatedness''': There have been many updates, particularly on the competition front (including the launch of Disney+).
 +
*** '''Topicality''': Netflix has benefited in revenue from COVID-19 stay-at-home, and traffic to the timeline has also increased. It may be worth capturing this interest better.
 +
*** '''Cannibalization opportunity from Wikipedia''': The corresponding timeline on Wikipedia gets [https://wikipediaviews.org/displayviewsformultiplemonths.php?page=Timeline+of+Netflix&allmonths=allmonths&language=en&drilldown=human over 10,000 pageviews per month], despite being less detailed and not particularly up-to-date either. There is significant upside if we can beat Wikipedia in search engine rankings.
 +
** Sebastian: Google Trends and Wikipedia Views.
 +
** Vipul: I know that in the past, I had asked to include all Netflix original content in the full timeline. However, given the significant scaling up of original content by Netflix, I think it is better to only keep in the full timeline the original content that was significant in some way (e.g., the first original content, the first original content in some language, all-time top-performing content). Instead, I suggest a separate section that summarizes, by year, the number and possibly a list of original content in that year.

* [[Timeline of face masks]] (new timeline):
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Topicality''': The role of face masks in combating COVID-19 has received a lot of attention.
 +
*** '''Existence value''': Face masks seem like an important topic to understand, given the role they may play in infection control.
 +

=== By November 1, 2020 ===

 +
* [[Timeline of Amazon.com]] (expansion)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':

*** '''Pageviews''' (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&pagepath_regex=Amazon.com&start_date=2018-04-29 over 4,000 pageviews] since the last significant update on 2018-04-28.
 +
*** '''Time since last update''': The time since last update will be 2.5 years at the due date for this timeline. This is well above the 1-year minimum.
 +
*** '''Qualitative outdatedness''': There have been many developments at Amazon since the last update to the timeline.
 +
*** '''Topicality''': Interest in the timeline has increased in light of general increased in interest in Amazon due to COVID-19.
 +
*** '''Cannibalization opportunity from Wikipedia''': The corresponding timeline on Wikipedia gets comparable numbers of pageviews, so we have a doubling opportunity by improving search engine ranking.
 +
 
 +
=== By December 15, 2020 ===
 +
 
 +
* [[Timeline of vaccines]] (Expansion started on June 1, 2020): Expand, restructure, add columns and in particular make it a more useful timeline for people trying to understand vaccines in order to understand the prospects for a coronavirus vaccine.
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Pageviews''': The timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&pagepath_regex=vaccines&start_date=2018-06-02 500 pageviews since being published 2018-06-01]. It's halfway to the 1000-pageview mark that is sufficient to trigger an expansion.
 +
*** '''Time since last update''': The timeline was last updated 2018-06-01, so it is a little over two years old. This passes the minimum threshold of one year, but is not enough to be sufficient for an expansion.
 +
*** '''Topicality''' (almost sufficient): Vaccines are a subject of discussion these days with potential coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines in the works.
 +
 
 +
=== By February 1, 2021 ===
 +
 
 +
* [[Timeline of Tesla Motors]] (expansion)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Time since last update''' (sufficient in isolation): The timeline passes the "five years since the last update" threshold; it has not undergone any significant expansion on Timelines wiki (it was last updated on Wikipedia, and the last paid update was in 2015).
 +
*** '''Pageviews''': The timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&pagepath_regex=Tesla almost 900 views on Timelines wiki as of mid-July 2020]. At this rate, it should get 1,000 views by the due date of the expansion.
 +
*** '''Qualitative outdatedness''': The subject of the timeline has had significant updates in the last few years (and its stock price has grown like crazy), to the point that the timeline feels quite outdated.
 +
** Sebastian: Google Trends and Wikipedia Views. Compare with SpaceX and other Musk companies.

=== By March 1, 2021 ===
 +
 
 +
* [[Timeline of artificial intelligence]] (new timeline)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': A good, solid timeline of artificial intelligence will complement the [[timeline of AI safety]] by providing a good background of the AI landscape relevant for AI safety.
 +
** Sebastian: First deadline date: April 1, 2020
 +
* [[Timeline of robotics]] (new timeline)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': A good, solid timeline of robotics will complement the [[timeline of AI safety]] by providing a good background of the AI landscape relevant for AI safety.
 +
** Sebastian: First deadline date: April 1, 2020
 +
* [[Timeline of machine learning]] (expand and possibly revamp the existing content in the timeline as well)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': A good, solid timeline of machine learning will complement the [[timeline of AI safety]] by providing a good background of the AI landscape relevant for AI safety.
 +
*** '''Pageviews''': The pretty skeletal version of the timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&pagepath_regex=machine_learning 400 pageviews on Timelines wiki] since the launch of Timelines wiki.

* [[Timeline of WeWork]] (expansion)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Pageviews''' (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&pagepath_regex=WeWork&start_date=2020-01-28 1,321 pageviews between 2020-01-27 (last update) and mid-July], and should have more than double that many by the due date.
 +
*** '''Time since last update''': The gap between the last update and the due date for this one is at least one year.
 +
* [[Timeline of 5G]] (expansion)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Pageviews''' (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&pagepath_regex=5G&start_date=2020-03-20 1,000+ pageviews between 2020-03-28 (creation) and mid-July], and should have more than double that many by the due date.
 +
*** '''Time since last update''': The gap between the last update and the due date for this one is at least one year.

=== By August 1, 2021 ===
  
* [[Timeline of WeWork]]: Recent-events-expansion. The timeline goes up to November 2017, so two years ago. It looks like a lot has happened at WeWork since then, and it's in the news of late for having business troubles and needing to shut down all its non-core businesses. I think it'll be good to expand it soon so that we can capture more of the interest people have in the company's fate (but not too soon, so we should wait for some of the news to settle down so we can get all the recent events when we expand).
+
* [[Timeline of 4G]] (new timeline)
* [[Timeline of Bitcoin]]
+
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
* New timeline: [[Timeline of malnutrition]]
+
*** '''Pageview potential''': Judging by how well [[timeline of 5G]] is doing, a timeline of 4G may also do reasonably well (I'm guessing that it'll get at least 20% of the pageviews of timeline of 5G, which should still be enough to justify creation, particularly considering that updates will not have to be that frequent).

Priority work from Vipul

By September 1, 2020

  • Timeline of Netflix (expansion)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Pageviews (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had over 5,000 views since the last significant update on 2018-07-15 (list of all work on the timeline). It therefore clearly qualifies per the heuristic of "at least 1,000 views since the last significant update."
      • Time since last update: The timeline has not been significantly updated for two years, which therefore passes the filter "don't update timelines more frequently than once a year."
      • Qualitative outdatedness: There have been many updates, particularly on the competition front (including the launch of Disney+).
      • Topicality: Netflix has benefited in revenue from COVID-19 stay-at-home, and traffic to the timeline has also increased. It may be worth capturing this interest better.
      • Cannibalization opportunity from Wikipedia: The corresponding timeline on Wikipedia gets over 10,000 pageviews per month, despite being less detailed and not particularly up-to-date either. There is significant upside if we can beat Wikipedia in search engine rankings.
    • Sebastian: Google Trends and Wikipedia Views.
    • Vipul: I know that in the past, I had asked to include all Netflix original content in the full timeline. However, given the significant scaling up of original content by Netflix, I think it is better to only keep in the full timeline the original content that was significant in some way (e.g., the first original content, the first original content in some language, all-time top-performing content). Instead, I suggest a separate section that summarizes, by year, the number and possibly a list of original content in that year.

  • Timeline of Amazon.com (expansion)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:
      • Pageviews (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had over 4,000 pageviews since the last significant update on 2018-04-28.
      • Time since last update: The time since last update will be 2.5 years at the due date for this timeline. This is well above the 1-year minimum.
      • Qualitative outdatedness: There have been many developments at Amazon since the last update to the timeline.

      • Topicality (almost sufficient): Vaccines are a subject of discussion these days with potential coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines in the works.

  • Timeline of Tesla Motors (expansion)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Time since last update (sufficient in isolation): The timeline passes the "five years since the last update" threshold; it has not undergone any significant expansion on Timelines wiki (it was last updated on Wikipedia, and the last paid update was in 2015).
      • Pageviews: The timeline has had almost 900 views on Timelines wiki as of mid-July 2020. At this rate, it should get 1,000 views by the due date of the expansion.
      • Qualitative outdatedness: The subject of the timeline has had significant updates in the last few years (and its stock price has grown like crazy), to the point that the timeline feels quite outdated.
    • Sebastian: Google Trends and Wikipedia Views. Compare with SpaceX and other Musk companies.

  • Timeline of artificial intelligence (new timeline)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:
      • Existence value: A good, solid timeline of artificial intelligence will complement the timeline of AI safety by providing a good background of the AI landscape relevant for AI safety.
    • Sebastian: First deadline date: April 1, 2020
  • Timeline of robotics (new timeline)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:
      • Existence value: A good, solid timeline of robotics will complement the timeline of AI safety by providing a good background of the AI landscape relevant for AI safety.
    • Sebastian: First deadline date: April 1, 2020
  • Timeline of machine learning (expand and possibly revamp the existing content in the timeline as well)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:
      • Existence value: A good, solid timeline of machine learning will complement the timeline of AI safety by providing a good background of the AI landscape relevant for AI safety.
      • Pageviews: The pretty skeletal version of the timeline has had 400 pageviews on Timelines wiki since the launch of Timelines wiki.

  • Timeline of 4G (new timeline)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:
      • Pageview potential: Judging by how well timeline of 5G is doing, a timeline of 4G may also do reasonably well (I'm guessing that it'll get at least 20% of the pageviews of timeline of 5G, which should still be enough to justify creation, particularly considering that updates will not have to be that frequent).

Not ready



Moved out of priority work

  • Timeline of Neuralink (Agreed on March 1)
    • Sebastian: Cover staff
    • Sebastian: Add Wikipedia Views and Google Trends data.
    • Sebastian: Add a sample questions section.

Returned with feedback

  • Timeline of infection control: I think this is pretty much ready!
    • Vipul: Maybe add some information on when masks first started becoming popular as a means to fight airborne viral illnesses, such as influenza and coronaviruses? I believe SARS 2003 was a starting point, but please check.
    • Vipul: Also add information on the tipping point of masks becoming a recommendation around the world for COVID-19?
    • Vipul: Maybe discuss specific physical distance guidelines in social distancing reecommmendations (e.g, 1.5m, 2m, 6ft).
    • Vipul: Perhaps talk about the idea of "hygiene theater" (Google it) -- a disproportionate focus on cleaning surfaces in the context of COVID-19 that is primarily airborne.

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: [32]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [33]
  • A table of plasmodia
