CSS

Dieter Steinwender is editor in chief of the German computer chess magazine Computerschach und Spiele (CSS). Until 2005 it was a paper magazine with co-publisher and ChessBase co-founder Frederic Friedel. Today the magazine is available online [7] with Steinwender as sole publisher and editor in chief [8] and shareholder of Steinwender EDV-Beratung GbR [9] with the associated CSS-Shop [10] [11] . The close relationships between CSS and CSS-Shop and ChessBase, was criticized as cause of possible conflict of interests related to independent journalism and test-reports of computer chess products [12] .
