Sean 'Day[9]' Plott takes a job with HTML5 browser game startup

Palo Alto-based startup Artillery is entrusting the World StarCraft champion Sean Plott with lead design on an upcoming browser title.
Plott, better known by his Starcraft handle 'Day[9]', happens to have taken a graduate degree in Interactive Media (game design) at USC, but after graduation began working in web TV.

He met some of the future Artillery studio members through a gaming league, and when the team reached out to him later, he was intrigued.
“Artillery set out to do the impossible: to have graphically intensive, triple-A games load quickly and run smoothly in the browser,” Plott related on his blog.
“After gently explaining to Ankur why the idea was technologically infeasible, he pulled out a laptop and showed me an already working demo… on a laptop getting a signal from tethered phone.”
