Here's a lesson for our Australian chess politicians. The ICU has just moved their journal to the internet. There will also be a separate e-zine for younger players. I wonder if "e-zine" is even in the vocabulary of Australian Chess Federation officials.
ICU PR officer Mark Quinn says, "We are making use of the flexible format of the internet...This generation is the future of Irish chess. They will be more likely to stay involved if we encourage them and let them realise that there's a whole world out there."
More from Electric News. The journal can be read here. It's an absolutely massive publication - some 44 pages, packed full of reportage, games, pictures and tables.
A tip for the NSWCA: stop sending those paper wasteful newsletters. Go online! Send me PDFs instead.
