Actually I meant exactly the pun that Hisham explained (and then said
he did miss it). I do not think Go hit any sweet spot at all, unless
what they were aiming was to be cool because it came from Google. I know
(and respect) the names of its creators, but I cannot see anything in
that language, from a technical point of view, to make it worth being so
popular ("so popular" meaning whatever popularity it got).
