    Boosting Interest in Go:

    ” – Daniel reported that the school Go project in Paul Roos was up and running but was looking for ways to boost interest as the numbers were very low.”

    Somehow circulate Hikaru No Go amongst their numbers?


  2. Steve says:

    Thanks for the idea. We’ll look into it 😉

    I don’t know what the legal issues are on electronic distribution. Before an English version of the Manga was licensed, it seems one could freely distribute the fansub version, or at least that no one minds.

    Now it has been licensed, I don’t know if that also applies to South Africa. Likely? It seems I can order the Manga over the internet, international shipping. (What about the fansub version of the anime then? 😉 )

    I will try and find out what legal issues is involved, then we (I?) can start wondering how to pass it on to potential readers / Go players.

    I’ve worked a little on my Go page on my site, for potential encouragement of people in my res. I intend to do a little more teaching after lunch. Maybe tomorrow, maybe later. I’ll see if there is interest – I’ve tought a couple of people already, one in my res, I must next encourage them to come to the Neelsie, but for that they need just a little more addiction, possibly provided by playing a few other people in res. 😉

    The group of four that were playing on the other side of the Neelsie Thursday-before-last, iirc, also needs to be encouraged to come to the club. They seem “scared” – they feel not good enough to come to the club yet – I feel this needs to change, that we can have more 20k-30k players – it will help our club grow / obtain new members, because at the moment people feel they must “first learn on their own” before coming to the club…

    Yes – currently distributing Hikaru No Go in English seems to be against the law. Even if not technically illegal in South Africa, it does seem to violate the spirit of the law.

    Your site looks cool – I have a number of other resources which I’ve downloaded too, but one has to check up on copyright issues before making them available.

    As regards the new guys, I have tried to tell them they’re welcome, but they don’t seem to believe me. Rather frustrating, since we’ve been teaching people to play from scratch at the club for over 10 years…

    On the positive side, those from the other side of the Neelsie have already indicated they are planning on coming to join us eventually, so we can just look forward to that.

  5. Steve says:

    Oh yes, I’ve added your site to the sidebar, Hugo.

  6. Hugo says:

    My last comment on the matter of the link on the sidebar: this link is for Hikarunix, since other stuff on my site is not of interest to people that already know this site, so I suggest the possibility of adding “#hikarunix” to the link to jump right to the relevant section.
