I intend for this to be mostly a Go diary, noting things I learn (or re-learn) as I return to Go.
I first learned Go while I was in high school, back in 1969, and played for a while under a Korean sensei in college between 1970 and 1972. After a number of life changes, including getting married, having loads of kids [and now grand kids!], and moving from the US to Israel, I ceased to play Go on a steady basis for a number of years.
I resumed regular play in August 2004.
I work as a computer "Guru", one of those people who are supposed to know everything about anything, or else where to find it; sometimes I even do! I specialize in algorithms, Oracle, and systems, with interests in encryption, coding paradigms, and training.
Under my second "hat" (on my second head?) I'm a Wordcrafter, which is sort of a tech-writer/ marcom author/ editor/ translator/ etc. for a growing Israeli hi-tech firm.
At this point (Sep 2004) I'm KGS 24K, but we'll see how that stands up to r/l play in one of the local Go clubs.
