Currently 2k on KGS.
I learned how to play go around April 2005. My goal is to become as strong at this game as possible and to break the game (or at least progress the development of a rigorous go model immensely).
I am currently a fourth year undergraduate math student at the University of California, San Diego studying abroad at Tsukuba University in Japan.

Gone abroad to Japan - likely to be around 6k KGS or so as of today, 9/19/06, but I really haven't played many online games - equivalent to approximately Japanese 2-3 dan.
Late September - 4k - KGS kyu rank inflation..not sure what this equates to..
8k by the end of June 2006. Accomplished on June 20th.
7k by the end of July 2006. Not sure when this happened..I think it was after my deadline..
Beat a KGS 2d in a rated game by the end of 2006 or a Japanese 4d.
