Where have I been?

Twenty twelve was an interesting year with many major changes. Things were busy and have gotten even busier but I suspect I should make the time to write about things that I may know a bit more about. I think I’ve also been spurred on by the series of articles by Lou Burruss over at SkyD . I’ve had conversations about exactly the things that he has mentioned over the past few years by all of the movers and shakers. I’m privileged in that I know many people and they’re candid with me and I’m not going to betray that trust. At the same time I’m going to voice my opinion more freely simply because of a number of changes in the past year.

Yes yes, happy new year and all that…

It’s 2013, time has flown, and much has happened in the world of Ultimate to write about. I suspect it’s time to return and start writing things again. I’m going to go a different route though. There’s plenty of coverage of events out there and I’m more interested in writing what I’m thinking and being less diplomatic. Expect updates and new posts here over the next few days.

Signs of life?

Hello Ultimate friends and fans. After a very long hiatus I plan on a momentary relapse before once again vanishing (online that is). I’ve been busy with work and life (those of you that know me will know what’s up) but I have still been active in Ultimate. This posting is to inform you that I’m heading to WUGC and am planning on some coverage from Japan. Postings may be delayed due to inclement weather but I shall provide a perspective of the event as it happens.

Introducing

Hey everyone, My name is Hilco and Tushar has asked me to join as a contributor to IAmUltimate. I’m really excited about it, and I will try my best to come up with interesting content. I am based in Amsterdam, so I’ll mainly be writing from a continental Europe perspective. Think tournaments like Windmill Windup, xEUCF, Paganello and more. This weekend I’ll be going to the UK Tour II (The second of three weekends that make up the national competition in the UK) where a lot of big UK teams will be enjoying their last practice before WUCC.

Weekend Live Update

At this point it looks like it will be raining all day Saturday while bright and sunny on Sunday. Live broadcast will happen on Sunday but may not happen on Saturday. At this time I’m still looking into a solution that will stand up to the wind and rain on Saturday.

The process

Dear Readers, As you have evidently seen over the past few weeks I have been lax with updating this blog. A combination of events have led to a lack of content and it’s one that will be remedied in the next few days. I have precious free time these days and every free moment is given to playing Ultimate or working for its progress; time has not remained for this line of communication.

Stats? What matters?

Lately I’ve been working on a small stats system for Ultimate (and general sports usage). While I do have plans on where to go with it I’m not sharing it outside of a small group at this time. In building the system (really just hacking it together over the last few days) I’ve learned how tricky it will be to put together a UI that will allow quick entry of all the events that Ultimate players encounter.

Philippines – Day 2 – Quick Review

Apologies for a complete lack of media from today (well almost) but it was busy from the start. A new New Zealand team policy requires a morning swim and from bed to beach to water was a one minute walk. The water is cool in the morning and totally worth the early start. I had no real plans for the day other than to get some Ultimate in. Mark and I met up with some of the Australian players with whom we wandered the beach with before grabbing breakfast.
