Ultimate has been played by a who's who of Silicon Valley techies over the years. Now the first pro game is about to be played here but there is some tension between the pros and the amateur association that supports the flying disc game in the U.S. bizj.us/v8mr3

No matter what happens, Alibaba's IPO probably won't be much help to the flagging tech IPO market. http://bizj.us/vtk5b
Alibaba could have the biggest, most successful IPO of all time and still not help the flagging tech IPO market much. And it could do big damage if it doesn't live up to expectations.

Peter Nieh in this Q&A says he has played Ultimate with employees and executives of about 24 companies in Lightspeed Ventures portfolio. He also talked about why he didn't invest in former colleague Pierre Omidyar's eBay launch many years ago.  http://bizj.us/vbqtj
Lightspeed Ventures Partner Peter Nieh has had a number of big wins, both as an investor in companies like Nest and on the playing field where he has been an Ultimate disc player for about 20 years. But one of his early decisions, which he regrets to this day, was passing a chance to invest in former General Magic colleague Pierre Omidyar's eBay. Here is a Q&A on these and other topics.
