DailyGammon and the NY Times

This is an "oldie but a goodie." I came across this old NY Times article on backgammon -- that mentions our favorite backgammon site,

Another site, DailyGammon, was founded by Jordan Lampe, a 34-year-old who works at a hedge fund in New York and limited himself to the briefest of e-mail correspondence with me. His mother, Linda Lampe, who helped design the Web site, told me that her son had designed a version of backgammon for hand-held devices.

''I understand how it becomes a bit obsessive,'' she said. I asked her how often she played.

''Oh, every day,'' Mrs. Lampe said.

How many times a day?

''I am too embarrassed to say,'' she said.
