This video marks 5000 chess videos on Youtube which I hope many people from all around the world has enjoyed. I talk about my background before Youtube and how the channel started. Originally I was working on my casual correspondence server Chessworld.net - before this the Barnet chess club website.
On Chessworld, it really started when Majnu2006 introduced me to how to record videos and I thought it would be interesting at least from a site marketing perspective to create videos. I quickly discovered it was great fun in its own right. Youtube makes it very addictive to create videos to get views, likes, comments, etc.
The video highlights that the videos on the channel reflect my interest areas in chess. For example blitz chess has been a passion of mine since the 1990s - especially in particular 5 minute blitz chess. I have had enormous pleasure playing blitz chess with friends such as Fatandmad and TheCypriot and Paul Georghiou. Fatandmad is Costas Karayannis. TheCypriot is Alecos Ethelontis.
The channel has also the Evolution of style series, which tracks how masters have been able to follow the foundations of their previousd generations and how the style of chess has evolved.
The channel also has videos that highlight the "dynamic school of chess". In this regard for example the recent Sacrifices series show how various masters have often given up material for positional and other considerations like King Safety
