Talking about the professional Go world, we have a new incorporation to the Go Blogsphere: Cho Hye-yeon (Korean 7p) writes her own blog at Full of surprises, where she talks about her last games, how she faced 132 mirrored moves (except for a move) during a pro game and other experiences related with Go.
If we refer to computer go, we have a couple of good posts made lately. The first one of them, made by the creator of Deep Blue, Feng – Hsiung Hsu: Craking Go at IEEE spectrum, where he talks about the future of computer go while making a correlation with the development of chess software. As resources should always be mentioned, this was referred to by through computer-go mailing system.
The second one involving computers can be useful for most of us. Xed-over, at GoDiscussions.com, mentions a command-line based way to use Gnugo in debug mode… Personally, I think the best thing you can do is to try it and you’ll have a nice surprise, it is very easy to use and the weaker you are, the more it’ll help you. There has been a lot of computer activity at GoDiscussions since there are even two posts going on at the same time talking about ranking and club managements software: 1 & 2.
Another interesting post at GoDiscussions.com, not focused in Go but in intelligence, there is “Unskilled and Unaware of It: How difficulties in Recognizing One’s Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments“. It’s a scientific research on this field which awesome results.
On more Go related, we have the The Gokyo Shumyo a day Calendar: “The Gokyo Shumyo is a classic tsumego text considered “required learning.” The tsumego range from very easy to very hard.”
