** Issa: I haven't gotten there yet in the timeline, but eventually talking about how the heuristics and biases literature became more mainstream would be good (through popular nonfiction books for lay audiences, blog posts, etc). For example I was introduced to this stuff via LessWrong, and I remember that a few years later my dad bought and showed me the book "Brain Bugs" which covers similar territory. Maybe this topic deserves a separate timeline though.
** Issa: 1986, bizarreness effect: I'm confused by this row because the two columns on the right seem to be saying opposite things. ✔ (Sebastian: The bizarreness effect has been disproved several times).
** Issa: 1988, Information bias: the event here seems to be missing context. What is "this diagnostic problem"? How is it related to information bias?✔ (Sebastian: I changed the event)
** Issa: 2004: distinction bias sounds a lot like the "less is more" one discussed previously. I think it would be good to highlight connections like this, e.g. by saying something like "A special case of the idea was previously proposed as the less is more bias, but this paper introduces a more general framework that not only includes this, but also include X, Y, Z biases" (or whatever the case may be).
** 2012, subadditivity effect: I couldn't understand what this meant "an information-theoretic generative mechanism that assumes a noisy conversion of objective evidence (observation) into subjective estimates (judgment)"✔ (Sebastian: I changed the event).
