Hello, my name is Kyle Gagner. I stumbled across your blog looking for information on how to make a physics engine, but I found something much more interesting, the game Go. I was completely unaware of Go until then, and now I’m completely obsessed with it. Impatient as ever, I played my first three games online, and my fourth game on a grid drawn on paper with bits of play-dough with a friend of mine at a science fair. After that, I decided to write my own online version of the game. It’s a convenient way to play, especially since I don’t yet own a Go board, but I am much anticipating whatever might come of your Virtual Go project, which promises to be orders of magnitude better. So, I suppose I’m simply writing to thank you for introducing me to go and to express my interest in your project. If there’s anything I can do to help the project, just let me know.
Thank you so much Kyle. I’m so happy I helped you discover Go. Go is awesome!
