Buy More Tickets to Win the Lottery

An amusing talk by Darius Kazemi at XOXO, How I won the lottery, pokes fun at internet success and how we underestimate the role of luck. To win the lottery he says, buy more lottery tickets.

It’s a decent framing to think about success on the internet. The largest factors that contribute to success (winning the lottery) are out of our control. However, you can do more to generate your own luck (buying lottery tickets) like creating more projects.
