It was and wasn’t planned but what a hoot. My friend Patrick Wolff, as planned, came for dinner and as I do too often, or maybe not often enough, I double booked the evening with an invitation to M@ Mullenweg to come by and help set up my new blog. A neighbor and his 12 year son, who competes in chess tournaments around the country, also joined us. An amazing collection of talent, ages and interests. Following dinner, Patrick played chess while M@ and I began fine-tuning my blog. Everyone crowded around Patrick. He’s a Grandmaster and has won two US championships (1992, 1995) – check out his web-site @ www.wolffchess.com - its got a cool interactive game situation demo. When the last game ended, everyone crowded around M@ (http://photomatt.net/) to watch his art unfold. What a treat.
