I am a Spanish go addict. Born in 1972, I started playing September 2000. I was 4K by September 2001, but I have not progressed much since then.
My girlfriend bought me my first go book (now she wishes she didn't).
Go is too big a game. I know I will never learn enough to be satisfied with myself. But I get a lot of fun playing and studying anyway.
Update: 23 Oct 2003 was a great day. I was (unofficially) promoted to 1 Kyu.
Update: 2011 was a great year. I left behind 8 long years of being a 1 Kyu. I am an official dan now.
