Priority work from Vipul

By October 1, 2020

  • 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.

By November 1, 2020

  • Timeline of Amazon.com (expansion)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:
      • Pageviews (sufficient in isolation): The timeline has had over 4,000 pageviews since the last significant update on 2018-04-28.
      • Time since last update: The time since last update will be 2.5 years at the due date for this timeline. This is well above the 1-year minimum.
      • Qualitative outdatedness: There have been many developments at Amazon since the last update to the timeline.
      • Topicality: Interest in the timeline has increased in light of general increased in interest in Amazon due to COVID-19.
      • Cannibalization opportunity from Wikipedia: The corresponding timeline on Wikipedia gets comparable numbers of pageviews, so we have a doubling opportunity by improving search engine ranking.

By December 15, 2020

  • 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 February 1, 2021

  • Timeline of Tesla Motors (expansion)
    • 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 March 1, 2021

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 May 1, 2021

By August 1, 2021

  • Timeline of 4G (new timeline)
    • Vipul's reasons for marking this as priority work:
      • Pageview potential: Judging by how well timeline of 5G is doing, a timeline of 4G may also do reasonably well (I'm guessing that it'll get at least 20% of the pageviews of timeline of 5G, which should still be enough to justify creation, particularly considering that updates will not have to be that frequent).

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 Netflix (expansion started on August 4 2020): Feedback:
    • Vipul: You have a row for 2002 talking about Spotify; I think that should be Netflix?
    • Vipul: Capitalization: It looks like some of the early rows use "NetFlix" with the capital F -- is there a specific reason, or should we switch them all to the "Netflix" capitalization?
    • Vipul: I think the launch of Disney+ should be a separate row? As far as I can make out, the launch is not directly mentioned.
    • Vipul: There should be a row on the actual departure of Friends from Netflix, I think. There is currently a row mentioning a survey about how people would react to the departure, but it actually did depart Netflix in the US as of January 1, 2020 (source)
    • Vipul: Maybe add a row covering the launch of HBO Max, arguably another Netflix competitor? (Friends would move here).
    • Vipul: Add a row for the departure of Office (source)? This will go on to NBCUniversal's streaming service Peacock in January 2021.
    • Vipul: And similarly, add a row for the future launch of Peacock?
    • Vipul: In the summary by year for 2020, I think it's worth mentioning the COVID-19 and giving a general idea of its impact.
    • Vipul: It might be worth adding more coverage of exclusive agreements Netflix has made with content creators for all their future work? For instance, with Shonda Rhimes, though she may not be the first one and you may just want to include the first few.
    • Vipul: It may be worth explicitly stating your inclusion criteria 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
