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.

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 waste management:
  • Timeline of OpenAI (started February 23, 2020)
    • 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.✔
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Maybe include 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).✔
  • Timeline of GiveWell (Expansion started on 2 December 2019)
    • 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
    • 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.✔

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
