First Post!

Welcome to Killing Shapes!

This is a blog I'm setting up to document my progress as a beginning Go players.

It still amazes me how many people don't know what Go is. I blame the bad western name for 95% of this problem. If you don't know what Go is, how did you get to this page?

I started playing around 2004 (I think I discovered go either 1) through computer science courses or 2) through movies (either Pi and/or A Beautiful Mind). I bought bunch of go books, some gear, even a decent 2" hiba table board, some decent bowls, and some thick glass stones. I even took a travel go board (and a bunch of books!) on my honeymoon in Maui (which is why I can remember I started in 2004). Then, like so many of my hobbies, I completely stopped. Recently I started playing again (I blame munin and dhogarty), and have taken it up with gusto.

I've found KGS to be quite enjoyable, but am still figuring out good ways to play in person with people.

I just waxed my goban! Heh.

Since the only reason you would choose NOT to lay your stones on my freshly polished wood (heh) would be insurmountable physical obstacles, you can find me on KGS (most likely), DGS, IGS, senseis library, or go discussions as 'antinoun'. It's a terrible pun, I've learned to live with it. You can also email me at antinoun _a_t_
