  1. Some general comments about video’s explaining go theory.
    I very much like the idea of video as opposed to books as a way to convey go skills, but I think these video’s would be much better if they would use a demonstration game at kgs to explain issues pertaining to go (using a headset and screencasting software like camtasia to comment during the demonstration). That way the stones are always perfectly aligned and you can instantly switch between related configurations of stones on the board, for instance, to compare two results that can ensue depending on how the opponent responds or alternative ways to handle a situation. You could have a game tree prepared in advance and that way you can easily navigate through the moves by clicking the relevant states in the tree structure of situations pertaining to a particular demonstration.

  2. I think 10min is very short to discuss about all sequences you gave. But it was an interesting video at least , thx a lot for it 😉

  3. Here is an example of a video employing a digital goban. It’s a part of a tutorial
    to introduce the rules of go, but it’s a great example of a nice clean way to
    demonstrate some elemental principles behind go. I’d love to see more advanced go theory presented in similar tutorial videos employing a digital board, rather than a physical board which involves more distractions.

  4. I”m sorry it’s so short, but I’m trying to keep everything within one video’s time length. As for computer thingies, I don’t know how to do that. Also I’m going to be doing lectures from a go club at school since that time is already reserved for Go. Doing it at home is difficult due to background noise VERY often and I’m hardly home thanks to school starting back up.

    I do appreciate your advice, and thanks for all the comments! I will try to make more interesting videos with what time and products I do have!
