GoGoD Goes Online Only

Though the “D” now stands for “Download,” GoGoD is continuing, following the death of T Mark Hall last December (In Memoriam: T Mark Hall, 1947-2013, EJ 12/12/2013), who originated the massive go game collection. Originally an acronym for Games of Go on Disc, GoGoD is no longer available on disk but will continue to be available online as Games of Go on Download. Surviving GoGoD partner John Fairbairn expects the collection of go games – currently at 79,000 — to reach at least 100,000. The only item being offered now is the database of sgf games. The Encyclopaedia (including the Names Dictionary) has been removed from the download package and the price has been significantly reduced. The GoGoD database is and will continue to be incorporated in various SmartGo products, along with the Names Dictionary.
