* [[Timeline of 5G]] (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)
 
** 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 Bitcoin]] (Tentative payment accepted)
+
* [[Timeline of OpenAI]] (started February 23, 2020) (Sebastian: Feel free to ask more for compensation of unmet items) ('''tentative payment accepted''')
** Vipul: What I meant with the Reddit subscriber counts was a little different: rather than having a separate row giving the subscriber count for the main reddit, edit the existing rows for the creation of various subreddits, to give the subscriber count as of today (rather than as of June 12, 2017, or whenever the subscriber count was last updated). So can you remove the row for March 19, 2020 and make updates to the rows for individual subreddits?
+
** For the staff changes, '''I also suggest labeling all these rows "Team"✔ instead of "Staff" so that they fit well for both staff and board changes.''' (Please also update the guidance in the sample questions section accordingly). Also, please keep only those rows for which there is more context or information beyond just a person joining or leaving. And include more details on why and how it's significant, in the timeline row itself. By the way, it is better to point readers to [https://orgwatch.issarice.com/?organization=OpenAI Org Watch] for a complete, systematic list of who joined when.
** Vipul: Add Bitcoin Core version 0.19.1 row (released March 9, 2020)
+
** Similarly, for research papers, please include only the ones for which something more can be said beyond just the fact of publication, including how other people received the paper or how it shaped the field. And include that additional information in the timeline.(Sebastian: I included those where OpenAi explains or introduces a new system, toolkit or product.)  
** Vipul: I see some values of "Policy" and "Regulation" for the event type. Should some of these be changed to "Official response (regulation)" or something similar, for consistency?
+
** Maybe add a column on the subfield or domain, so that rows, especially rows about research papers, can be labeled by the subfield. This will make sorting and classification easier.
** Vipul: Take a look at the commented-out portion right below the "Full timeline" section header -- perhaps this should be moved to "What the timeline is still missing" if it is still missing? And the rest can be removed.✔ (Sebastian: some of these have been addressed, but they need evaluation by Issa)
+
** Maybe include [https://medium.com/@NPCollapse/the-hacker-learns-to-trust-62f3c1490f51 this] as an example of OpenAI influencing others not to release their models (either as a separate row, or in one of the OpenAI GPT-2 rows).
** Sebastian: I added more sample questions.
+
* [[Timeline of GiveWell]] (Expansion started on 2 December 2019) (Sebastian: Feel free to ask more for compensation of unmet otems)
* [[Timeline of HTTPS adoption]] ('''Due date on March 1, 2020. Late and incomplete''') (Tentative payment accepted)
+
** Domain names: When talking about the original registration of givewell.org and givewell.com, you should mention that these are different organizations than the GiveWell of this page✔
** 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)
+
** compare [http://web.archive.org/web/20100525182513/http://www.givewell.org:80/ this] and [http://web.archive.org/web/20100423164224/http://www.givewell.org:80/ this] it looks like GiveWell acquired the givewell.org domain between April 23 and May 25, 2010; I can't pinpoint a more precise date, but it would be worth adding this row even with the imprecise time range✘(both links lead to no information).
** 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/
+
** Similarly, see if you can use the Wayback Machine to find out when GiveWell (acquired givewell.com✘) and set it to (redirect to givewell.org✔). 
** Cover the launch of sites like neverssl.com and their purposes✔
+
** For the 2019 board membership changes https://www.givewell.org/changes-in-board-membership it would be good to have a single, consolidated row that describes the controversy around the board membership changes, and discussion of it
** 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
+
** For other board membership and staff changes, my suggestion would be to only keep changes for which something more can be said than just the name of the person joining. For instance, if GiveWell did a blog post about the role and filling it in. Or if the person would later do something significant, or would end up staying at GiveWell for a long time period. '''I also suggest labeling all these rows "Team"✔ instead of "Staff" so that they fit well for both staff and board changes.''' And include more details on why and how it's significant, in the timeline row itself. By the way, it is better to point readers to [https://orgwatch.issarice.com/?organization=GiveWell Org Watch] for a complete, systematic list of who joined when.✔
** Add Wikipedia Views✔ and Google Trends✔ data.
+
** For citations, rather than having the citation link in a separate row at the bottom, how about having it at the end of the quote, or at the end of the para before the quote? That will make the page a bit more compact.
* [[Timeline of Quora]] (Expansion started on 11 January 2020‎) (tentative payment accepted)
+
** For Wikipedia Views, try to get the chart going back further; I know that only "desktop" data will be available before July 2015 but even that could be illustrative.
** Add the recent Quora layoffs announcement.✔  
+
** "GiveWell moves its offices to San Francisco." You should say that this is from New York City✔, and also (talk about reasons✘).
** Sebastian: Add a sample questions section.✔
+
** The ''Vox'' citation seems to have a wrong date (December 25, 2018); it was originally published December 1, 2015 but is updated every few months and the date is updated. It may be better to use the December 1, 2015 date.✔
 
+
** Include the very first staff member donations post https://blog.givewell.org/2013/12/12/staff-members-personal-donations/ and mention that it started an annual tradition of such posts.✔

* [[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.

  • Timeline of OpenAI (started February 23, 2020) (Sebastian: Feel free to ask more for compensation of unmet items) (tentative payment accepted)
    • For the staff changes, I also suggest labeling all these rows "Team"✔ instead of "Staff" so that they fit well for both staff and board changes. (Please also update the guidance in the sample questions section accordingly). Also, please keep only those rows for which there is more context or information beyond just a person joining or leaving. And include more details on why and how it's significant, in the timeline row itself. By the way, it is better to point readers to Org Watch for a complete, systematic list of who joined when.✔

And include that additional information in the timeline.✔ (Sebastian: I included those where OpenAi explains or introduces a new system, toolkit or product.)
    • Maybe add a column on the subfield or domain, so that rows, especially rows about research papers, can be labeled by the subfield. This will make sorting and classification easier.✔

    • compare this and this it looks like GiveWell acquired the givewell.org domain between April 23 and May 25, 2010; I can't pinpoint a more precise date, but it would be worth adding this row even with the imprecise time range✘(both links lead to no information).
    • Similarly, see if you can use the Wayback Machine to find out when GiveWell (acquired givewell.com✘) and set it to (redirect to givewell.org✔).
    • For the 2019 board membership changes https://www.givewell.org/changes-in-board-membership it would be good to have a single, consolidated row that describes the controversy around the board membership changes, and discussion of it
    • For other board membership and staff changes, my suggestion would be to only keep changes for which something more can be said than just the name of the person joining. For instance, if GiveWell did a blog post about the role and filling it in. Or if the person would later do something significant, or would end up staying at GiveWell for a long time period. I also suggest labeling all these rows "Team"✔ instead of "Staff" so that they fit well for both staff and board changes. And include more details on why and how it's significant, in the timeline row itself. By the way, it is better to point readers to Org Watch for a complete, systematic list of who joined when.✔
    • For citations, rather than having the citation link in a separate row at the bottom, how about having it at the end of the quote, or at the end of the para before the quote? That will make the page a bit more compact.✔
    • For Wikipedia Views, try to get the chart going back further; I know that only "desktop" data will be available before July 2015 but even that could be illustrative.✔
    • "GiveWell moves its offices to San Francisco." You should say that this is from New York City✔, and also (talk about reasons✘).
    • The Vox citation seems to have a wrong date (December 25, 2018); it was originally published December 1, 2015 but is updated every few months and the date is updated. It may be better to use the December 1, 2015 date.✔
    • Include the very first staff member donations post https://blog.givewell.org/2013/12/12/staff-members-personal-donations/ and mention that it started an annual tradition of such posts.✔

Priority work from Vipul

By June 15, 2020

  • 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.
  • 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 vaccines: 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.
