Around The Interwebs: The Full English Breakfast And More…

This post is a hodgepodge of interesting things I’ve found on the web recently and want to bring to your attention. First of all, I want to remind everyone to make sure to check out Blue Devil Knight’s blog carnival while it is still available. There are a ton of interesting articles, and I highly recommend it. Second of all, the new Full English Breakfast show is finally here, episode number six for those of us who are keeping track. This is the greatest podcast on the interwebs- this episode covers a lot of ground with the usual wit we’ve come to expect from these guys. They’ve got an interview with Magnus in which for the first time ever to my knowledge a journalist has asked him directly about his absurd decision; a hilarious song sung by Short, and a discussion of the upcoming TATA. Also, this article is a must read. It nearly brought me to tears and I highly recommend it. While the NY Times attacked this heart warming article in an all-too-predictable way here, it left me feeling downright charitable and wondering how to get in touch with this chess church in a slum of the capital of Uganda to send them pieces and boards. If anyone else is feeling charitable as a result of reading this article and figures out where to send some chess stuff- let me know so I can pitch in.
