Wikipedia Chess Is Google No.1 (Not!)

One of the standard bits of advice they give you for making presentations is, 'When you make predictions, don't give dates'. I should have remembered this in Wikipedia Chess the New Google No.1, when I wrote, 'Although [Wikipedia Chess] may bounce in and out of the top position over the near term, I expect it will eventually occupy that spot for years to come.'

Not even six months have passed, and there is already a new Google no.1: Chess.com. The domain name is certainly a part of its success. Another part is that it has attracted a large number of people who are particularly savvy about Internet chess. How long will it remain no.1? No more predictions from me!
