* [[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)✔

=== Expansions ===
+
* [[Timeline of Bitcoin]] (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?✔
 +
** Vipul: Add Bitcoin Core version 0.19.1 row (released March 9, 2020)✔
 +
** 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?✔
 +
** 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)
 +
** Sebastian: I added more sample questions.
 +
* [[Timeline of HTTPS adoption]] ('''Due date on March 1, 2020. Late and incomplete''') (Tentative payment accepted)
 +
** 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/
 +
** Cover the launch of sites like neverssl.com and their purposes✔
 +
** 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.
 +
* [[Timeline of Quora]] (Expansion started on 11 January 2020‎) (tentative payment accepted)
 +
** Add the recent Quora layoffs announcement.✔

=== By May 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 July 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.

Expansions for:

 +
* [[Timeline of waste management]] (expansion started on 4 February 2020‎)
 +
** 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 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 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}}✔.

* [[Timeline of OpenAI]] (this expansion started on February 23, 2020): Expand to cover recent developments. In particular:
 +
** [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: Cover all research papers[https://openai.com/progress/#papers].
 +

 +
=== Returned with feedback ===
 +
 
 +
 
 +
* [[Timeline of malnutrition]]
 +
** The "vitamin deficiency" should go parenthetically under "Undernutrition" in the category column and the event type column could be something like "Discovery"
 +
** " 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.
 +
** Sebastian: Add Google Scholar table
 +
* [[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.

Latest revision as of 11:42, 29 March 2020

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

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].

  • 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)✔

Expansions

Requested/accepted:

Remove from list when updated to contract work page [4] and [5].

  • Timeline of Bitcoin (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?✔
    • Vipul: Add Bitcoin Core version 0.19.1 row (released March 9, 2020)✔
    • 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?✔
    • 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)
    • Sebastian: I added more sample questions.
  • Timeline of HTTPS adoption (Due date on March 1, 2020. Late and incomplete) (Tentative payment accepted)
    • 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/
    • Cover the launch of sites like neverssl.com and their purposes✔
    • 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.
  • Timeline of Quora (Expansion started on 11 January 2020‎) (tentative payment accepted)
    • Add the recent Quora layoffs announcement.✔
    • Sebastian: Add a sample questions section.✔

Priority work from Vipul

By May 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 July 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.

By August 1, 2020

By October 1, 2020

Expansions for:

By January 1, 2021

By April 1, 2021

Not ready

Moved out of priority work

  • Timeline of OpenAI (this expansion started on February 23, 2020): Expand to cover recent developments. In particular:
    • Sam Altman becoming CEO of OpenAI
    • This coverage of OpenAI✔ and 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[7].
    • Sebastian: Cover all Milestone Releases[8].
    • Sebastian: Cover the blog[9].
  • 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 malnutrition
    • The "vitamin deficiency" should go parenthetically under "Undernutrition" in the category column and the event type column could be something like "Discovery"
    • " 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.
    • Sebastian: Add Google Scholar table
  • 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[10][11], 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.

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: [37]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [38]
