Apparently a myth, but one happily repeated by the two blokes (David and Stuart Wise of King Mob / BM Blob).
At least three versions exist; according to Chris Gray, it was solely to do with tactical differences; the official IS version The Latest Exclusions (IS no. 12) lays the blame squarely on Black Mask activist Ben Morea. Vaneigem had visited America with the intention of developing contacts with potential members of a U.S. sections. Morea and Vaneigem obviously had a major disagreement, but each reported a conflicting version; the British did not automatically believe Vaneigem's account, and thus in the eyes of the SI were suspect. Gray, it is then discovered, had been 'complaining' that the British had not felt sufficiently appreciated and felt isolated and eventually became consciously obstructive, so they therefore had to go. Fred Vermorel's account Sex Pistols (Star, London 1978) pp.273-4, is funnier; Chris Gray it seems had boasted of at least 30 trained and combat hardened street-fighters awaiting his call to arms. Debord, on hearing this, rushed across the Channel to inspect the 'troops' only to find Dave and Stuart Wise well-equipped with cans of Export. The British section were then duly expelled for the heinous political crime of lying. All three accounts are probably true.
Have you ever played "Go"?
Atari (当たり) is a term for a situation where a stone or group of stones has only one liberty and may be captured on the next move if unable to attain additional liberties. A group in such a situation is said to be in atari or under atari. Beginners often verbally call out "atari" in a manner similar to calling out "check" in chess, but it is considered inappropriate for more advanced players.
also the name of a boredoms membertrivia: even if you haven't heard of "Go" you've probably heard of "Atari'... sure you think of the video game company, but they were named after the life or death situation in a typical game of Go
too drunk to explain what the above means, but lets's just say Go has had a major cultural impact
I thought AI surpassed everyone there a while ago, but I did also just hear someone talking about how, if you play in unconventional, pseudo-random ways, you may scramble the AI's approach.Go was the game in which it had always been impossible to make a computer any near top level players. But a year or so back a totally unknown player turned up to play on this website and completely took the piss out of the world's greatest player. The story was that it was believed to be someone testing an AI but I never saw the follow up to that story, anyone know what happened?
Seems you're right... I guess when you're my age 2016 feels like last year. Fuck.I thought AI surpassed everyone there a while ago, but I did also just hear someone talking about how, if you play in unconventional, pseudo-random ways, you may scramble the AI's approach.
