Here is a precis of the program/presentations.
Don's Recap of his Adventures in Hamburg.
Here is a photo of Mr. Don giving his presentation, and a link to Mr. Don's presentation (just a little off-kilter, like his personality, heh heh):
Chess Historical Research and the Internet: A Meeting of "Many Worlds"
The entire experience opened our eyes to an entirely new world, and "we" made many new friends!
Don met Dr. Koichi Masukawa, with whom we shared a dinner in 2001 in Amsterdam, the next IGK Symposium. Here is Dr. Masukawa in 1999:
In addition to meeting - face to face for the first time - our mentor, Dr. Ricardo Calvo, and his wife, Carmen Romero, he also met Hanspeter Suwe, Ken Whyld, Dr. Ulrich Schadler, Dr. Peter Monte, and many others. Isis and I met several of these same people in Amsterdam in 2001, but we did not meet Mike Pennell, whom I most particularly had wanted to meet. Oh well.
