Google Google has invented a new programming language designed to reduce the complexity of coding without compromising the performance of applications. Called Go, the language has been tested internally at Google but is still at an experimental stage, so the company is releasing it as open-source code in the hope that it will get help with its future development.

Rob Pike and Ken Thompson, who are leading the project, worked together previously on Plan 9 at Bell Labs, which had a similar looking mascot:

It wouldn't surprise me if this one was also drawn by Renee French (Pike's wife).
