    Tomorrow I am leaving very early on a jet plane to go to Anaheim. No, I’m not going to Disneyland-- I’m going to attend the Major League Gaming event, where Starcraft II will be on the Main Stage!

    I’m going not just as a fan, but also to write an awesome article for Ars Technica. While there, I hope to see (and possibly meet) Lim Yo Hwan, aka SlayerS Boxer, the most famous Starcraft player of all time. He is one of a few select Korean pros who have been invited to battle with the best players from North America and Europe.

    I’m so excited!! Wish me luck!

    So, umm... how did it go?

    It's been rather quiet in here.

    The best moments were watching Jinro drop a nuke on Rain's army, live on stage, and watching Boxer NEARLY beat MMA for a chance to win the entire tournament.

    Watching Boxer was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He's the most famous Starcraft player (if not the most famous e-Sports player) who ever lived, and I got to see him play live. I'll never forget that.

    He's also like the nicest, most amazing guy ever.
