Would Aliens Enjoy Chess?
I have been playing chess for a long time. I learned to play when I was only three or four years old. Way back then, there were no computers that played chess. It was truly science-fiction the idea of a computer good enough to play against humans.
The year I first lost to a computer, I also got my first job as a coder. It led me to learn about computers. I have made a decent living at the keyboard ever since.
