Here's what I learned playing chess against the Garry Kasparov (besides that I may be even worse at chess than I thought)
Even in assured defeat, competing in chess against the longstanding top player in the world is a privilege. It is also an experience in learning the value of adaptability.

That time I interviewed chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov...
 
Surprisingly, when +Seth Rosenblatt interviewed chess monster... uh, #chess GRANDmaster Garry Kasparov, Garry politely answered his questions about Vladimir Putin, the Russian surveillance state, and how tech influences democratic values. https://the-parallax.com/2016/01/21/garry-kasparov-takes-on-the-russian-surveillance-state-qa/

+Lars M. Hansen  Thanks for the link, good reading. My router has a guest network feature but I wonder how secure that is.
