Deep Blue anniversary quasi unnoticed

Except for a a few tweets, the 25th anniversary of Garry Kasparov’s landmark match loss to Deep Blue, an IBM research computer, 1997 in New York went unnoticed by chess websites and news media. Some had commemorated last year the less significant loss of one game in the 1996 match that Kasparov still had dominated. The general and sponsors’ interest in chess suffered after “humanity lost”.
