Iwamoto Kaoru (9-dan) was known to be a great contributor of Go in the West (Europe & US) by setting up the Iwamoto Foundation in 1986. The World Wide Iwamoto Awards is named after him as his contest is to follow Iwamoto Kaoru’s wish of spreading Go around the World.

The contest was first held in Europe in 2001, 2003, 2007 and 2012. In 2015, the Awards are expended to a global level.

Xinwen to talk in Pecha Kucha Brunei 30th May, 2015

*Pecha Kucha*

[Pecha Kucha About Go Game Weiqi By Bob Babber and Mark Rubensteirn]


According to Wikipedia source.
Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs).PKN was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa).

I personally very attracted to the idea of Pecha Kucha because of my architectural background, which I find PK an essential method to deliver architectural presentation. To my surprise, PKN exists in Brunei ( and with such opportunity given I took the courage to register. Nonetheless, the topic I will be talking is about Go and it will be happening in ITB the 30th of May, 2015.

Hence there are quite a few of Go presentation which I have been watching, taking notes and studied as shown below.
