=== Expansions ===
+
* [[Timeline of waste management]] (Expansion started on February 4, 2020):
 +
** There is a duplicate row for the founding of {{w|Clean Harbors}} -- fix that!✔
 +
** {{w|California Electronic Waste Recycling Act}} has no explanation -- fix that!✔
 +
** The current big picture mixes multiple levels of granularity -- maybe separate into highlights by century and highlights by decade? Similar to what I did for [[timeline of AI safety]].✔
 +
** Sebastian: Add from {{w|List of waste disposal incidents}}✔, {{w|Garbage disposal unit}}.✔
  
Requested:
+
* [[Timeline of OpenAI]] (started February 23, 2020) (Sebastian: Feel free to ask more for compensation of unmet items) ('''tentative payment accepted''')
* [[Timeline of pollution]] (expansion):  
+
** 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.✔
** Add more on tort law and the role of torts in controlling pollution (this includes both general development of the law and its application in individual legal jurisdictions) ✔
+
** 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.)  
** '''Expansion started on 30 July 2019 for Tort law'''
+
** 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.✔
** '''Expansion started on 23 July 2019 for Kuznets curve, externalities, tragedy of the commons, etc'''
+
** 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).✔

* [[Timeline of GiveWell]] (Expansion started on December 2, 2019) (Sebastian: Feel free to ask more for compensation of unmet items)
 +
** 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 [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).
 +
** 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 [https://orgwatch.issarice.com/?organization=GiveWell 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.✔

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].


Expansions

Requested/accepted: Remove from list when updated to contract work page [4] and [5].

  • 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.✔
    • 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.)
    • 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).✔


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.

Devec

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.

By October 1, 2020

By December 15, 2020

Expansions for:


By March 1, 2021

By July 1, 2021

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 GiveWell (Expansion started on December 2, 2019) (Sebastian: Feel free to ask more for compensation of unmet items)
    • 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.✔

Others





Pending expansion

Pending timeline

Other pending work:

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: [32]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [33]
  • A table of plasmodia
