* [[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]].

* [[Timeline of 8chan]]
** Add a row on 2ch (2chan) the very original inspiration for 4chan ✔
** Add more references/details to the discussion and media coverage around August 5 after Cloudflare shut the site down, and make clear that Frederick Brennan explicitly thinks the site should be shut down (there's a tweet by him but that tweet doesn't say everything) ✔
** Coverage of the Epik/BitMitigate/Voxility controversy after Cloudflare stopped serving 8chan ✔
** Coverage of Tucows as domain registrar for 8chan ✔
** Is there more we can say about the kinds of boards and topics that are covered in 8chan, and how they differ from 4chan? In particular, it would be good to have more coverage of the aspects of 8chan that aren't the most controversial ('''8chan more controversial character in comparison to 4chan is explained, departing from their similar nature''')
* [[Timeline of startup accelerators]]
* [[Timeline of CloudFlare]]
* [[Timeline of Tumblr]]
* [[Timeline of 5G]]
** There are two rows from 2010 for Thai government blocking WikiLeaks access to the country (August 18 and November 29). Did this happen twice? Or is one of the dates wrong?
** It seems like Julian Assange is the only prominent person you mention at WikiLeaks -- are there other people? Probably, more on the team at WikiLeaks may be worth mentioning. It probably isn't all a one-man show, right?
** The domain censorship, and the switch from wikileaks.org to mirror.wikileaks.info info✔ should be discussed
** Switch to HTTPS should also be mentioned
** What was the software stack they were using, and how is it changing over time?
** Some of your leaks only reference defend.wikileaks.org, and it's probably better to reference the actual leak files as well as third-party coverage rather than just defend.wikileaks.org
** There should probably be some discussion of Assange's dead man's switch for WikiLeaks?
