Last night I went to see Pascal and Irina give a lecture at the Marshall Chess Club:First Pascal showed his game against Dmitry Shneider:
Then Irina showed a game from China.
Lots of pictures of Irina:
Somewhat incredibly, there were six women in the audience (ok, counting Irina and myself).
In other news, I'm reading a fascinating book called Gig, in which 125 people talk about their jobs. I found it online and embedded it for you. Reading the high school basketball coach one was unnerving, but he's crazier than me, no? update: people were telling me the blog wouldn't load for them, so I've erased the embedded book and linked to it instead
