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


Note: Read general policies related to payment for new and existing timelines [1]

New timeline

  • Timeline of bicycle sharing systems (Feedback addressed with check marks. Check [2]):
    • Some of the rows that should have a country column filled in have it missing ✔
    • Many of the rows can benefit from having the city entered parenthetically, but don't ✔
    • The row "A number of researches relative to bicycle-sharing schemes emerges.[14]" doesn't feel clear enough (also the grammar/sentence structure feels awkward). ✔
    • It may be helpful to add more context for the launch of individual bike-sharing systems, e.g., any distinguishing features, and what generation they are. This is done already for a few rows, but it may be worth looking at others to see if any more context can be added. In particular, when a second bike-sharing system launches in a city that already has one, it may be worth explaining how the systems differ and why a second one was needed. ✔ (more context was added to the rows)
    • Divvy in Chicago may deserve a row ✔
    • There could probably be more rows on successes/failures of existing bike-sharing systems. ✔ (successes and failures were added in the same rows that indicate the system launches)
    • More rows were added
  • Timeline of pollution in Beijing (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of Our World in Data (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of DeepMind (Tentative payment accepted)
  • Timeline of content delivery networks (Tentative payment accepted)

Not ready

  • Timeline of Y Combinator (returned with feedback: "For timeline of YC it would be good to add timeline rows for the batches where various top YC companies were accepted. List at [7]" "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)
  • Timeline of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement
  • Timeline of Médecins Sans Frontières
  • Timeline of pollution (expand: - The economics of pollution (in particular, discussion of the concept of externalities, tragedy of the commons) - Environmental Kuznets curve)
  • Timeline of mobile telephony (expand: Voice over IP calling (for timeline of mobile telephony)

- Wi-Fi calling (for both timelines)- The nature of mobile phone voice and data plans, and how these have evolved over time - Cellular connectivity in underground areas, such as subways (I have some example events in - Move to IPv6 - tethering and hotspots created by mobile phones are worth mentioning, maybe in both timelines )

To propose

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: [36]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [37]
  • A table of plasmodia
