This is Sebastián Sánchez. I am Wikisanchez in both [[wikipedia:User:Wikisanchez|English]] and [https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usuario:Wikisanchez Spanish] Wikipedia. I work for Vipul Naik as content creator. A diary with notes is being written in [[User:Sebastian/notes]]. Promotion of the timelines can be consulted at [[Timelineswiki promotion]]. Pics for use on timelines can be searched by exploring [[Free pics websites repository]]. Check also [[Representativeness of events in timelines]].

* [[Timeline of 5G]]
+
* [[Timeline of SpaceX]]: (Tentative payment accepted)
** 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 timeline where applicable, clarify whether the 5G rollout uses millimeter-wave or sub-6GHz✔/✘ (Sebastian: Not 100% complete. Probably with more time and research, blank sections could be filled)
+
Other (not requested):
** 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/✔ (Sebastian: I mentioned this on the big picture due to lack of dates which would allow me to locate events on the full timeline. Return if necessary)
 
* [[Timeline of NTT Docomo]] (tentative payment accepted)
 
** Add charts for stock price✔ and market cap✘ (so far I couldn't find the csv files)
 
** 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 HTTPS adoption]] ('''Due date on March 1, 2020. Late and incomplete''') (Tentative payment accepted)
+
=== Works on Subwiki ===
** Use https://transparencyreport.google.com/https/overview to give the dates that various Google products moved to 100% HTTPS (exclude Google Drive which appears to have been at 100% HTTPS before the first available date of the report, and exclude things that are still not at 100% HTTPS✔/✘ (Vipul: capture the Json from the network panel to confirm the dates)
+
 
** Cover the launch of whynohttps.com✔ (see the launch blog post https://www.troyhunt.com/why-no-https-heres-the-worlds-largest-websites-not-redirecting-insecure-requests/
+
Note: Shown here to ease activity monitoring outside timelineswiki. Remove after some time.
** Cover the launch of sites like neverssl.com and their purposes✔
+
Note: Funding for these works hasn't been discussed, therefore this list is not presented for payment update.
** See if there is online discussion of why software sites like apache.org, w3.org✘(it appears to be already using https), and nginx.org✘(so far I haven't found discussion on this) still use plain HTTP
+
 
** Add Wikipedia Views✔ and Google Trends✔ data.

==== Devec ====
* [[Timeline of Quora]] (Expansion started on 11 January 2020‎) (tentative payment accepted)
+
 
** Add the recent Quora layoffs announcement.✔
+
== Priority work from Vipul ==
** Sebastian: Add a sample questions section.✔
+
 
 +
 
 +
=== By February 1, 2021 (start any time) ===
  
 +
* [[Timeline of contact tracing]] and [[timeline of contact tracing in the COVID-19 pandemic]]:
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Topicality''' (almost sufficient): Contact tracing has been in the limelight in connection with COVID.
 +
*** '''Existence value''': It's hard to find a good single source explaining the evolution of contact tracing. A timeline could add considerable unique value on that front.
  
Other (not requested):
+
=== By March 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
  
=== Works on Wikipedia ===
+
* [[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.
  
Requested/Accepted:
+
=== By April 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
  
 +
* [[Timeline of influenza]] (expansion; '''incremental expansion only'''; add a few rows for recent developments including interaction with COVID; do not spend effort expanding historical portions of timeline)
  
Other (not requested, not under contract, not presented for payment update):
+
=== By May 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
  
=== Works on Subwiki ===
+
* [[Timeline of senescence research]] (expansion):
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': A solid timeline about the biology of senescence can be extremely useful background to people navigating the subject.
 +
*** ''' Time since last update''': The timeline got its last minor expansion in 2018; it is mostly the same as when it was originally created in 2016. Since then, our standards for timelines and our processes for creating them have evolved quite a bit.
 +
*** Pageviews so far is a non-reason, but there is a possibility that an improved, revamped timeline can attract way more pageviews.
 +
** Suggestions for expansion (from Vipul); don't limit yourself just to these:
 +
*** Probably we should add more column(s) to classify by the theory or approach that the row is about. These columns may be blank for some rows.
 +
*** There should be more context on individual rows, including possibly some context that explains the significance and current standing. The idea is that readers reading it should have a sense of the ups and downs of specific theories in the marketplace of ideas.
 +
*** Things like Wikipedia Views, Google Trends, Google Ngram viewer
 +
*** Maybe some charts of things based on Google Scholar, research budgets, etc.
  
  Note: Shown here to ease activity monitoring outside timelineswiki. Remove after some time.
+
=== By June 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
  Note: Funding for these works hasn't been discussed, therefore this list is not presented for payment update.
 
  
==== Devec ====
+
* [[Timeline of calorie restriction]] (new timeline, currently only a collection of links)
 +
** '''Vipul's reason for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Harmony with other work''': This might fit well with the work on timeline of senescence research.
 +
*** '''Existence value''': Googling for timeline of calorie restriction  does not currently surface any hits. The timeline, once completed, could be a canonical reference for people interested in how calorie restriction developed.
  
== Priority work from Vipul ==
+
=== By July 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
  
=== By May 15, 2020 ===
+
* [[Timeline of quantified self]] (perhaps rename to timeline of personal science? It may be worth looking at different potential terminology)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': Having an official timeline of quantified self would help understand this really interesting trend/space. There are a few timelines of quantified self currently available, but most don't give a good feel for the development (e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantified_self#History https://thesocietypages.org/cyborgology/2017/04/13/what-is-the-history-of-the-quantified-self-a-history-of-part-1/ https://michaelrucker.com/well-being/brief-history-of-the-quantified-self-movement/)
 +
* Timeline of biohacking (?) -- might be good to work on this alongside; if there's not enough distinction between this and the quantified self timeline, they could be merged into one.
  
* [[Timeline of influenza]]: Expand to include more comprehensive coverage of flu epidemics and pandemics, and in general cover more events. Interest in influenza (and in pandemics in general) is increasing in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
+
=== By August 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
* New timeline: [[Timeline of infection control]]; this timeline should cover ideas in infection control like qurantines, cordon sanitaire, social distancing, contact tracing, hand washing, etc. There will be some overlap with [[timeline of epidemiology]] but it will be much more focused on the practical steps involved with infection control, using pandemics and epidemics as illustrative cases for how good the practice is at any given time.
 
  
=== By August 1, 2020 ===
+
* [[Timeline of weight loss]] (currently partially done)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': Having an official timeline of weight loss would help us understand this fairly important topic.
  
* [[Timeline of artificial intelligence]] (new timeline)
+
=== By September 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
* [[Timeline of robotics]] (new timeline)
 
* [[Timeline of machine learning]] (expand and possibly revamp the existing content in the timeline as well)
 
  
=== By October 1, 2020 ===
+
* Timeline of nutritional supplements (?)
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': Supplements are embraced across many branches of medicine, and are considered very importance in prophylactic medicine. It would be good to have a timeline exploring this space.
 +
* Timeline of Vitamin D
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Existence value''': Vitamin D may be the single most important micronutrient, as shown in its role in COVID.
  
Expansions for:
+
=== By October 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
  
* [[Timeline of waste management]] (expansion started on 4 February 2020‎)  
+
* Timeline of fats (or fatty acids): An in-depth timeline about the various debates surrounding saturated vs unsaturated fats, cis vs trans, omega-3 vs omega-6, partially hydrogenated oils, etc.
** 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)‎
+
=== By November 15, 2021 (start/continue any time) ===
** 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 some events on 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}}✔.
 
** Sebastian: Add a sample question section.
 
  
=== By January 1, 2021 ===
+
* [[Timeline of Tesla, Inc.]] (expansion; '''give priority to incremental expansion but feel free to expand earlier content if time and interest''')
 +
** '''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.

+
* [[Timeline of artificial intelligence]] (new timeline)
 +
** '''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 OpenAI]] (this expansion started on February 23, 2020): Expand to cover recent developments. In particular:
+
=== By May 15, 2022 (don't start more than 240 days before due date) ===
** [https://techcrunch.com/2019/05/18/sam-altmans-leap-of-faith/ Sam Altman becoming CEO of OpenAI] ✔
 
** [https://www.technologyreview.com/s/615181/ai-openai-moonshot-elon-musk-sam-altman-greg-brockman-messy-secretive-reality/ This coverage of OpenAI]✔ and [https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1229546206948462597 Elon Musk's reaction]✔
 
** Based on the coverage of OpenAI above, see if there are other expansions and edits that should be done to past events in the timeline✔
 
** Sebastian: Add a sample questions section.
 
** Sebastian: Cover staff. Useful to know not only who is involved but what are the different roles in the organization.✔
 
** Sebastian: Add Wikipedia Views✔ and Google Trends✔ data.
 
** Sebastian: Cover all research papers[https://openai.com/progress/#papers].
 
** Sebastian: Cover all Milestone Releases[https://openai.com/progress/#papers].
 
** Sebastian: Cover the blog[https://openai.com/blog/].
 
  
* [[Timeline of Neuralink]] (Agreed on March 1)
+
* [[Timeline of WeWork]] (expansion; '''incremental expansion only''')
** Sebastian: Cover staff
+
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
** Sebastian: Add Wikipedia Views and Google Trends data.
+
*** '''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.
** Sebastian: Add a sample questions section.
+
*** '''Time since last update''': The gap between the last update and the due date for this one is at least one year.
  
=== Returned with feedback ===

 +
*** '''Time since last update''': The gap between the last update and the due date for this one is at least one year.
  
* [[Timeline of malnutrition]]
+
=== By July 1, 2023 (start/continue any time from July 1, 2021 onward) ===
** " 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.)"
 
** Sebastian: cover all vitamin deficiencies.
 
** Sebastian: cover discoveries of all vitamins.
 
* [[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. <u>But we can wait</u>✔ 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.

For instance, let's say you last expanded a timeline in March 2019, and it covers content till March 2019. You want to add a couple of significant events in 2020. You can do so, and keep the focused coverage period as March 2019. So readers get the information that the coverage after March 2019 will be only partial, and less complete than coverage until March 2019.

In some cases you may decide to do a more complete expansion while adding time-sensitive content, but this should be done only if time and mood permit.

This is Sebastián Sánchez. I am Wikisanchez in both English and Spanish Wikipedia. I work for Vipul Naik as content creator. A diary with notes is being written in User:Sebastian/notes. Promotion of the timelines can be consulted at Timelineswiki promotion. Pics for use on timelines can be searched by exploring Free pics websites repository. Check also Representativeness of events in timelines.

Ready

Note: Read general policies related to payment for new and existing timelines [1]

New timeline

Remove from list when updated to contract work page [2] and [3].


Expansions

Requested/accepted: Remove from list when updated to contract work page [4] and [5].

Other (not requested):

Outside Timelineswiki

  • Wikihow work (Vipul's complete list of pages: [6]):


Works on Subwiki

Note: Shown here to ease activity monitoring outside timelineswiki. Remove after some time. Note: Funding for these works hasn't been discussed, therefore this list is not presented for payment update.

Devec

Priority work from Vipul

By February 1, 2021 (start any time)

  • Timeline of contact tracing and timeline of contact tracing in the COVID-19 pandemic:
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Topicality (almost sufficient): Contact tracing has been in the limelight in connection with COVID.
      • Existence value: It's hard to find a good single source explaining the evolution of contact tracing. A timeline could add considerable unique value on that front.

By March 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • 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 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 April 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • Timeline of influenza (expansion; incremental expansion only; add a few rows for recent developments including interaction with COVID; do not spend effort expanding historical portions of timeline)

By May 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • Timeline of senescence research (expansion):
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Existence value: A solid timeline about the biology of senescence can be extremely useful background to people navigating the subject.
      • Time since last update: The timeline got its last minor expansion in 2018; it is mostly the same as when it was originally created in 2016. Since then, our standards for timelines and our processes for creating them have evolved quite a bit.
      • Pageviews so far is a non-reason, but there is a possibility that an improved, revamped timeline can attract way more pageviews.
    • Suggestions for expansion (from Vipul); don't limit yourself just to these:
      • Probably we should add more column(s) to classify by the theory or approach that the row is about. These columns may be blank for some rows.
      • There should be more context on individual rows, including possibly some context that explains the significance and current standing. The idea is that readers reading it should have a sense of the ups and downs of specific theories in the marketplace of ideas.
      • Things like Wikipedia Views, Google Trends, Google Ngram viewer
      • Maybe some charts of things based on Google Scholar, research budgets, etc.

By June 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • Timeline of calorie restriction (new timeline, currently only a collection of links)
    • Vipul's reason for marking as priority work:
      • Harmony with other work: This might fit well with the work on timeline of senescence research.
      • Existence value: Googling for timeline of calorie restriction does not currently surface any hits. The timeline, once completed, could be a canonical reference for people interested in how calorie restriction developed.

By July 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

By August 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • Timeline of weight loss (currently partially done)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Existence value: Having an official timeline of weight loss would help us understand this fairly important topic.

By September 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • Timeline of nutritional supplements (?)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Existence value: Supplements are embraced across many branches of medicine, and are considered very importance in prophylactic medicine. It would be good to have a timeline exploring this space.
  • Timeline of Vitamin D
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Existence value: Vitamin D may be the single most important micronutrient, as shown in its role in COVID.

By October 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • Timeline of fats (or fatty acids): An in-depth timeline about the various debates surrounding saturated vs unsaturated fats, cis vs trans, omega-3 vs omega-6, partially hydrogenated oils, etc.
  • Timeline of proteins (or amino acids): An in-depth timeline looking at the role of various kinds of proteins in diet, and our understanding of them.

By November 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • Timeline of Tesla, Inc. (expansion; give priority to incremental expansion but feel free to expand earlier content if time and interest)
    • 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.

By December 15, 2021 (start/continue any time)

  • 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

By January 15, 2022 (start/continue any time)

  • 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

By February 15, 2022 (start/continue any time)

  • 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.
    • Sebastian: First deadline date: April 1, 2020

By March 15, 2022 (don't start more than 180 days before due date)

By May 15, 2022 (don't start more than 240 days before due date)

  • Timeline of WeWork (expansion; incremental expansion only)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:

By July 15, 2022 (don't start more than 240 days before due date)

  • Timeline of 5G (expansion; incremental expansion only)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:

By July 1, 2023 (start/continue any time from July 1, 2021 onward)

By January 1, 2024 (start/continue any time from January 1, 2022 onward)

Suggested time-sensitive content

With time-sensitive content, the idea may be to add a few additional important recent events to a timeline, without doing a systematic expansion. So, there may be holes in coverage. The "focused coverage period" banner on top can help to clarify the situation.

For instance, let's say you last expanded a timeline in March 2019, and it covers content till March 2019. You want to add a couple of significant events in 2020. You can do so, and keep the focused coverage period as March 2019. So readers get the information that the coverage after March 2019 will be only partial, and less complete than coverage until March 2019.

In some cases you may decide to do a more complete expansion while adding time-sensitive content, but this should be done only if time and mood permit.
