* [[Timeline of Tata Group]]
 +
** "Instead of one "Category" column, there should be three columns, for event type, domain (e.g., education versus beverages versus manufacturing versus transport), and a column for the subsidiary name"✔
 +
** Include information on {{w|Singur Tata Nano controversy}}✔
 +
** I think the 20th century part of the big picture should be broken down into the period till independence of India (1947) and the 1947 to 1991 period (1991 was the year of liberalisation). I think the 21st century can be extended to the period starting 1991✔
 +
** With this big picture breakdown, there should be more discussion of the impact of the Indian government and government policy on Tata. e.g., after independence, the impact of the goverrnment taking over Tata Airlines, and the high tax rates. Similarly, the impact of liberalisation and how Tata Group was one of the conglomerates in India that were able to benefit from liberalisation✔

* [[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).

**For timeline of YC it would be good to add timeline rows for the batches where various top YC companies were accepted. List at [https://www.ycombinator.com/topcompanies/?fbclid=IwAR3FylutgPKAfsFhCCy1TZOozWQoVDnssbj-dxOezsVg-LjadPzXbk666bQ]" ✔
 
** "For Michael Seibel, also mention him becoming CEO of the Y Combinator core unit" ✔
 
** The evolution of Y Combinator's request for startups page should be recorded"
 
** "And didn't yc have startup school for many years, not just in 2017" ✔
 
** "For Peter Thiel you have a row on him joining YC but not on him leaving it" ✔
 
** "When talking of the departure talk of the reasons and context (Trump support)"  ✔
 
** "The timeline of YC should mention Jessica Livingston's role more prominently" ✔
 
** "There were a few blog posts where she and Graham both said that she did most of the character-vetting for YC)

** '''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.
* [[Timeline of food and nutrition in India]]
+
** 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. Also 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).
 +
** Cover more of the discussion/debate with Giving What We Can, 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)

This is Sebastián Sánchez. I am Wikisanchez in both English and Spanish Wikipedia. A diary with notes is being written in User:Sebastian/notes

Ready

  • Timeline of Tata Group
    • "Instead of one "Category" column, there should be three columns, for event type, domain (e.g., education versus beverages versus manufacturing versus transport), and a column for the subsidiary name"✔
    • Include information on Singur Tata Nano controversy
    • I think the 20th century part of the big picture should be broken down into the period till independence of India (1947) and the 1947 to 1991 period (1991 was the year of liberalisation). I think the 21st century can be extended to the period starting 1991✔
    • With this big picture breakdown, there should be more discussion of the impact of the Indian government and government policy on Tata. e.g., after independence, the impact of the goverrnment taking over Tata Airlines, and the high tax rates. Similarly, the impact of liberalisation and how Tata Group was one of the conglomerates in India that were able to benefit from liberalisation✔

Priority work from Vipul

By the start of Giving Season (December 8, 2019)

By the beginning of next year (January 1, 2020)

  • 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 Bitcoin
  • New timeline: Timeline of malnutrition

Not ready

  • Timeline of GiveWell
    • 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. Also 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).
    • Cover more of the discussion/debate with Giving What We Can, 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)
  • Timeline of food and nutrition in China
  • Timeline of search engine optimization

To propose

Note: Vipul use ✘ for works you are not interested in (quicker than using strikes).

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: [31]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [32]
  • A table of plasmodia
