Your Move/Readers Write: How to Submit A Classified? Redmond Remembers the Game of Life; The Origin of Surreal Numbers?

Tuesday April 22, 2014

How to Submit A Classified? “Is there someone out there who can tell me how to list an item in the E-Journal’s Go Classified section?” wonders Marc Palmer. “I’ve searched the site and it’s certainly not obvious.”
Certainly; just send your classified(s) to us at journal@usgo.org; no charge for the listing(s)!

Redmond Remembers the Game of Life: “I enjoyed the Game of Life article,” (Go Spotting: Conway’s Game of Life 4/14 EJ) writes Michael Redmond 9P. “It reminded me that my father once showed it to me. We used white stones for the newborns, and then changed them to black stones after taking away the dead stones, after which we could start a new turn. Some shapes are static, and some move around, so it is interesting to have them scattered about as they interact. One tends to run out of space on a go board, so I guess it works better on a computer.”

The Origin of Surreal Numbers? “Another interesting fact about Conway, according to his biographer in a forthcoming book,” writes British Go Association president Jon Diamond, “is that he invented the concept of ‘Surreal Numbers’ when he was watching a game of go at Cambridge University between Tony Goddard and myself in 1967 or thereabouts…”
