During the Pan American Youth Chess Championship this summer, we asked the delegate of Puerto Rico to be the special contributor of our Spanish language blog: www.chesscampeona.blogspot.com, it was our first experience in real time reporting. We held telephone interviews, special reports in Spanish and simply had a great time. We considered doing the same for this blog, but it totally passed my mind.
Today we communicated with 3-Americans in Turkey, through email, and the common denominator was the same: slow internet connection at the site. David Zeng, the father of Winston Zeng - North American Youth Chess Championship U-8, informed me he still could not get adequate internet speed at 2:00 a.m. even while everyone else was asleep.
Needless to say, as we get a "more personal touch" reporting from our special contributors - you will be the first to know.
