* [[Timeline of Amazon]] (expansion) ('''Tentative payment accepted'''):
 +
** Vipul: Stock price chart?✔
 +
** Vipul: For some rows, adding a bit more "forward-looking" information on the eventual importance of the development would be nice. Example rows where this would help: introduction of Free Super Saver Shipping✔, introduction of Amazon Prime✔, launch of the Kindle✔, launch of Mechanical Turk✔, launch of Amazon EC2 / Amazon Web Services✔, and Jeff Bezos buying the Washington Post✔ (this could be tied to later criticisms by Trump of the Washington Post being a newspaper peddling Amazon's interests). Basically with that done, it will be easier later to trim the timeline and move further developments into smaller timelines; also even until then, having initial events include more of a forward-looking perspective makes the timeline more valuable.
 +
*** Sebastian: I'm adding more rows to give more perspective of the evolution of these service/product(s).
 +
*** Sebastian: I added a new column in order to sort by service/product/subsidiary, thus facilitating sub-timelines within the full timeline.
 +
** Vipul: It might be worth adding a row about Bezos's divorce with his wife MacKenzie Scott, and her getting 25% of his Amazon shares (though voting rights remained with Jeff Bezos). See for instance [https://marker.medium.com/the-inside-story-of-mackenzie-scott-the-mysterious-60-billion-dollar-woman-21952a3dc811 this].✔
 +
** Vipul: For Amazon's very early history, it would be good to include a longer list of co-founders and early supporters (for instance, Jeff's wife MacKenzie may have played a key role in the early years; I'm not sure). If the information is hard to dig up, though, you can skip it.✔

* [[Timeline of WikiLeaks]]

== Outside Timelineswiki ==
* [[Timeline of Y Combinator]] ('''tentative payment accepted''')
 
** "Jessica's 2007 book" ✔
 
** "it may be worth adding a row on how Paul Graham defended Airbnb as nice ppl when there was a controversy" ✔
 
** Row for openai mentioning Sam Altman too, who is more Central to openai than Jessica ✔
 
** Maybe a few rows on the pre-YC life of the key partners, esp. Paul Graham and Jessica Livingston ✔
 
** Row for Sam Altman joining as a YC partner? ✔
 
** The launch of Hacker News (news.ycombinator.com) and more information on its role in the Y Combinator ecosystem ✔
 
** Row for Y Combinator batch that had Reddit ✔
 
** Row for Quora being a late YC joiner ✔
 
** You mention that ACLU is a YC consultant but not that ALCU joined the YC batch as a nonprofit too ✔
 
** More on nonprofits that joined YC (80,000 Hours, Centre for Effective Altruism) ✔
 
** Imagine K12 ✔
 
** Rows for competition? i.e., other startup accelerators that have similar models, or models that are different in some key ways ✔ ('''I only included three accelerators as competitors. I'm planning to go deeper in the subject in the [[Timeline of startup accelerators]]. Let me know if you want more discussion on competition on this timeline''').
 
** Y Combinator's release of application videos ✔ at https://www.ycombinator.com/video/ and there's also a fuller list at https://mittalrohit.com/59-links-for-y-combinator-application-and-interview-advice-bf90191be8ed ('''Most of the rows under Advice for startups type of event come from sources given in the latter link''').
 
** '''I included a row for each school batch except the ongoing Winter 2019. I think I named all the non-profits. I named also the top rated YC companies according to valuation [https://www.ycombinator.com/topcompanies/], and others with article on Wikipedia'''.

== Priority work from Vipul ==
 
   
 
   
Other (not requested):
+
=== By January 15, 2021 (start any time) ===
 +
 
 +
* [[Timeline of contact tracing]]:
 +
** '''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 [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.
 +
 
 +
=== By May 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 July 15, 2021 (don't start more than 180 days before due date) ===
 +
 
 +
* [[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.
 +
 
 +
=== By September 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 November 15, 2021 (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 January 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 [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.
 +
** Sebastian: First deadline date: April 1, 2020

 +
* [[Timeline of WeWork]] (expansion; '''incremental expansion only''')
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work''':
 +
*** '''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.
 +
*** '''Time since last update''': The gap between the last update and the due date for this one is at least one year.
 +
 
 +
=== 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''':
 +
*** '''Pageviews''' (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had [https://analytics.vipulnaik.com/top-pages.php?project_title=Timelines%20wiki&pagepath_regex=5G&start_date=2020-03-20 1,000+ pageviews between 2020-03-28 (creation) and mid-July], and should have more than double that many by the due date.

== Suggested time-sensitive content ==
  
Other (not requested, not under contract, not presented for payment update):
+
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.
  
=== Works on Subwiki ===
+
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.
  
  Note: Shown here to ease activity monitoring outside timelineswiki. Remove after some time.
+
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.
  Note: Funding for these works hasn't been discussed, therefore this list is not presented for payment update.
 
  
==== Devec ====
+
* [[Timeline of online food delivery]] (one of the most viewed timelines):
 +
** COVID-19 has probably boosted online food delivery a lot? This may deserve a mention.
 +
** DoorDash IPO (filed for one on November 13, IPO date still unclear)
 +
* [[Timeline of nonprofit evaluation]]:
 +
** Add the acquisition of ImpactMatters by Charity Navigator.✔

* [[Timeline of face masks]] (new timeline):
 +
** '''Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work''':
 +
*** '''Topicality''': The role of face masks in combating COVID-19 has received a lot of attention.
 +
*** '''Existence value''': Face masks seem like an important topic to understand, given the role they may play in infection control.
 +
** Feedback:
 +
*** I think for the big picture, 20th century could be broken down into first half of 20th century (widespread use in hospitals) and second half of 20th century (increased mainstreaming esp. in Asia, and in the context of pandemics)✔
 +
*** For 21st century, I'm wondering if pre-COVID (till 2019) and COVID (2020) should be separated. This will be a roughly "equal" splitting by importance or amount of information.✔
 +
*** I think it would be good to have a table giving a summary of the broad categories of masks/respirators, along with high-level information on origin, rise to popularity, and advantages and disadvantages. Probably you can crib something from Wikipedia and tweak some columns. Also, would a "mask type" column make sense for the full timeline?

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].

  • Timeline of Amazon (expansion) (Tentative payment accepted):
    • Vipul: Stock price chart?✔
    • Vipul: For some rows, adding a bit more "forward-looking" information on the eventual importance of the development would be nice. Example rows where this would help: introduction of Free Super Saver Shipping✔, introduction of Amazon Prime✔, launch of the Kindle✔, launch of Mechanical Turk✔, launch of Amazon EC2 / Amazon Web Services✔, and Jeff Bezos buying the Washington Post✔ (this could be tied to later criticisms by Trump of the Washington Post being a newspaper peddling Amazon's interests). Basically with that done, it will be easier later to trim the timeline and move further developments into smaller timelines; also even until then, having initial events include more of a forward-looking perspective makes the timeline more valuable.
      • Sebastian: I'm adding more rows to give more perspective of the evolution of these service/product(s).
      • Sebastian: I added a new column in order to sort by service/product/subsidiary, thus facilitating sub-timelines within the full timeline.
    • Vipul: It might be worth adding a row about Bezos's divorce with his wife MacKenzie Scott, and her getting 25% of his Amazon shares (though voting rights remained with Jeff Bezos). See for instance this.✔
    • Vipul: For Amazon's very early history, it would be good to include a longer list of co-founders and early supporters (for instance, Jeff's wife MacKenzie may have played a key role in the early years; I'm not sure). If the information is hard to dig up, though, you can skip it.✔

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.

Priority work from Vipul

By January 15, 2021 (start any time)

  • Timeline of contact tracing:
    • 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 May 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 July 15, 2021 (don't start more than 180 days before due date)

  • 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 September 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 November 15, 2021 (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 January 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 October 15, 2022 (don't start more than 300 days before due date)

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.

Not ready

Returned with feedback

  • Timeline of face masks (new timeline):
    • Vipul's reasons for marking as priority work:
      • Topicality: The role of face masks in combating COVID-19 has received a lot of attention.
      • Existence value: Face masks seem like an important topic to understand, given the role they may play in infection control.
    • Feedback:
      • I think for the big picture, 20th century could be broken down into first half of 20th century (widespread use in hospitals) and second half of 20th century (increased mainstreaming esp. in Asia, and in the context of pandemics)✔
      • For 21st century, I'm wondering if pre-COVID (till 2019) and COVID (2020) should be separated. This will be a roughly "equal" splitting by importance or amount of information.✔
      • I think it would be good to have a table giving a summary of the broad categories of masks/respirators, along with high-level information on origin, rise to popularity, and advantages and disadvantages. Probably you can crib something from Wikipedia and tweak some columns. Also, would a "mask type" column make sense for the full timeline?

Note: Vipul may use ✘ for works he is 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: [28]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [29]
  • A table of plasmodia
