As an avid student of strategy games, my latest focus has been on the ancient game of Go. As with chess and poker, my practice is to read the seminal books on the game, and find software with a reasonable AI to practice against. Once I have a solid understanding of the rules, I seek out fellow (human) students to play and learn with, and senior practitioners or teachers I can learn from.
As I start the journey with Go, here are some of the resources I’ve come across:
- The Interactive Way to Go with 35 online lessons for learning the basics.
- Lessons in the Fundamentals of Go by Toshiro Kageyama
- Goban for MacOS X.
and please pass along (you can use the comments below or email me at go at mcbreen dot net) any other recommendations you may have–or let me know if you’d like a match, online or otherwise!
To see is to forget the name of what one sees.
Thanks to the new 8-Core Mac Pro, now demonstrating enough practical application to belie its original moniker of “glorious overkill”, our new CMS lab is online.

with plans to include others such as Joomla, Concrete5, and of course Microsoft SharePoint in future waves. If you are passionate about another platform you think we should include, please feel free to leave a suggestion in the comments.
Welcome MacPro. Eight cores, all saddled and bridled for me.
