I like writing about chess history and also I develop instructional chess software.

I maintain a Personal Chess History website.

Pre-chessbase games vs Seirawan, Benjamin, Dlugy, other notables; anecdotes, photos.

I am working on an iPhone annotated games and quizzes app to help people on the road to chess mastery.  Early May 2011 was when it first got onto Apple's iTunes.

 Take a look at  or to learn more.   It will now on on iTunes under the name "Chess U".   The first courses include Openings, Endgames, and Famous Players (Anand).
