I think I made the right decision to give up playing go: I just don’t want to spend one evening a week doing that. But I was just looking at a picture of a game in Hikaru No Go (nine moves into the Ota vs. Akira game), and memories came back. It can be a remarkably rich experience.

The next time I’m looking for a job, I should keep my eye out for one where I’ll be able to play go over lunch.
