Tilting at windmills

Apparently, a small sub-culture is forming in the blogosphere around Michael de la Maza's "Rapid Chess Improvement: a study plan for the adult player." Two interrelated blogs using Don Quixote as their thematic launching point have been providing daily reports on two player's efforts to follow de la Maza's prescription.

Check out: (Don) Man de la Maza & Sancho Pawnza

Today I found yesterday's opening post of Self Flagellation to the Goddess Caissa, a blog which states that it is "in the tradition of (Don) Man de la Maza and Sancho Pawnza, another man's journey to escape the land of Class C rated chess."
