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 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 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
    • 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. 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.
  • 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

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

Marking tools: Use ✔ ✘
