Just a few days ago, PC Gamer UK chose Sean "Day[9]" Plott as the Gamer of the Year, noting his devotion to StarCraft and the things he's done for the community throughout the years.

If you sliced Sean Plott’s arm open, you wouldn’t find any blood – you’d be hit in the face with arterial sprays of StarCraft. Day[9], as the internet knows him, lives and breathes the strategy series, making a living at one point as a professional StarCraft: Brood War player. He now dedicates most of his time to helping fellow players up their StarCraft II game through daily video tutorials and commentating sessions.

 

His ‘dailies’ are the centrepoint for a rabid and friendly community, an amazing following for hour and-a-half videos of a man in a room talking to a webcam. I asked Sean why he started recording his thoughts.

 

Although the article is short, it does have a bits of an interview with Day[9] and some of his perspectives on e-sports. it's good to know that figures in the StarCraft community as well as the game itself are gaining popularity, and will hopefully lead to a growth of e-sports over on this side of the world.
