Chess and Web Design

From politics to business, from the arts to various sports, even including the winter sport of curling, the game of chess has been used, or perhaps abused, as a metaphor to describe the various drama in those other fields. In one way or another, chess is associated with many other human endeavours. We've heard and seen plenty of it.

But I think this is the first time I've read of chess associated with, wait for this...web design!

From Smashing Magazine:

The business of building websites is one of constant change, adaptation and strategy. The way designers and developers build websites is often informed by the methods of others and their own trial and error. In light of this, we can draw a number of parallels — some philosophical, to a certain extent — between Web professionals and one of the oldest and most popular board games of all time (counting traditional and digital games). This game is chess.
