Summary of what I’ve been working on: February 2017
I began the latter half of January by writing up an essay contest about evaluating small-scale giving opportunities.
I ended January and began February with several global health-related tasks:
- I cleaned up the page on Gavi to make the rebranding clear.
- I fixed dead links and added some events to Timeline of global health.
- I added a reception section to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation page.
- I updated the page on Iodine Global Network to make the renaming clear.
- I significantly expanded the page on Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and made the renaming history clear.
- I significantly expanded the page on the Global Burden of Disease Study; the page actually used to be called “Global burden of disease”, but this naming was confusing since the page was about the study.
More recently, I worked on some grants tables for the Laura and John Arnold Foundation grants tables page; unfortunately an editor removed them so they are currently only available in user space.
I’ve also been working on a collection of scripts to help analyze various activities on Wikipedia.
Here are some activity feeds that track what I’ve been working on:
- My contributions to the English Wikipedia (more information about my Wikipedia editing)
- My GitHub contribution activity, including my commits to this website’s repository
- My public GitHub Gists
- Summary of my contract work for Vipul Naik (more detailed page with tables)
- List of pages on this site, sorted by date of last substantive revision
- List of all pages on this site, ordered by the date of last modification
- Recent changes on the Cause Prioritization Wiki
