I believe the publicly released rationale for Go:

– A modern update on C: remove the obvious cruft of C, add object-based and
– A language very fast to parse and code generate.
– Include modern approach to parallelism and concurrency in the language:
processes and channels on a thread pool.
– Include a modern approach to code reuse – it is not totally clear Go has yet
achieved this.
– A language in which Google interns cannot make big errors.
