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.

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

Timely Q&A, given Box's IPO filing today. http://bizj.us/upxux
Nick Sturiale, who invests for Seattle and Palo Alto-based Ignition Partners, is this week's TechFlash VC Q&A. Among other things, he talked about how Ignition's two regions compare. He also talked about how Hightail, which he is a longtime backer of, fits into the storage and collaboration market.
