This site has -- without a doubt -- been the most poipular project I've ever done on the web. (And believe me, I've done plenty!)
I thought it would be fun to post some of the excellent emails I've gotten over the years. I'm delightfully shocked at the worldwide response, and I look forward to hearing from even more folks as we work to spread the joy of Go to people everywhere.
Just a note to tell you that I have used part of kato.jpg in the cover design of the CD for Go++ (www.goplusplus.com).
Thanks very much,
Our place is in Silom Bangkok Thailand.
I am inspired by go in art as well. Here is a link to my site which has go related art as well: http://cypress3.ets.arts.ohio-state.edu/~jbrennan -- look for go pictures in the photo gallery and a digital image I compiled of 140 moves from an online go game I played a little while ago. Keep up the good work!
Great artwork. I love that one with the crane's nest, because: I know the Go game since two weeks and like it. A few days later I watched two cranes in the fields near my house. Cranes are very unusual there and have never been watched there before. Really strange occasion. Hope, I took some good photos...

I am trying to start a go club in the city I live in. To reach people, I would like to set up a small internet site to briefly introduce them to the game and contact me if they are interested in playing Go at a go club. To make an eye catching website, I had the idea to use The Japanese character "Go", embossed from╩your site. I would like to ask if some of your pictures may be used for this purpose.
First of all, great stuff.
Second, I represent the South African Go Association (www.sa-go.co.za) andam the editor of its official magazine, The SA Go Report, which publishes twice a year and has a readership of about a 100 (most of whom are under eighteen and with no access to the internet). This is a non-profit magazine based entirely upon voluntary labour.
I would like to use some of your images in our magazine (photos of guys you know playing go gets boring), but this would, of course, require your express permission. I can't pay you (we have no money and live on sponsorship), but I would reference you and send you two contributor's copies.
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.

I saw your site, and your very cool 3D Go artworks, and I figured you may be interested in a little project of my own. The idea of Freed Go is to play Go on any arbitrary 3d graph like a Sphere, a Torus, a Mobius Strip or on numerous flat fields but with 3, 5 or 6 neighbors (10 boards in all). Just thought you'd be interested.
