Chess Social - A Vision Realised
10 years ago nobody discussed or shared much on chess. We used to go to our favourite chess website every day and read it and carry on with our lives. I imagined there could be an alternative to this, that the news came to us and it never stopped, it just carried on rolling news updates.
I worked out that chess fans had access to smartphones, tablets, laptops, and smart televisions and each of these devices had a cycle of usage which had a peak and trough and if we were able to ride this crest we could share news and enable conversation throughout the waking day for any particular fan in any timezone. With 6 hour rolling cycles of news and chess updates you could keep the entire chess world entertained.
Was it worth it?
