I read a bit about it … Google released an own programming language called go yesterday. Well… they could have done better as go is not really easy to search for. Anyway a guy – mostly unknown – raised this thread: Issue #9 with go: it is his language, he invented it before “I have already used the name for *MY* programming language”. I don’t really care… but I love the thread – if you have some time just skim through it: go vs. Go!

Out of that there came a few other sides such as:

  • an online petition for google to change the name 
  • a website using one of the proposed names golang for introducing go
  • some media attention here or here
