Introducing Jaigo: Go for the iPhone, Only in Javascript

Now you can play the noble, ancient game of go on your iPhone, online or offline! Jaigo is go for the iPhone, and also the world first computer go engine written in Javascript. Jaigo was created by Sean Foy and myself, Noel Weichbrodt, in the winter of 2007, and is a semi-active open source project hosted by Google Code. We released Jaigo under the Mozilla Public License. Jaigo builds on the brilliant iPhone go UI of Tetsuki, and began with parts of the go engine SimpleGo v2.

On the Woes of Working on Enterprise Collaboration Software

Microsoft: “We have wikis in Sharepoint 2007!”
Translation: “We have hacked a SharePoint library to implement ~1/5 of the features that MediaWiki had in beta, and we only support the three percent of bog-standard html tags that our dancing monkey boy intern was able to implement between taking belly shots at the bars in Redmond. Have you seen the Aero-y powerpoint slide that says ‘Wiki!’ and the five shiny buttons on the edit panel yet?”

Of course, it’s my lot in life, and help (perpetually) just around the corner.
