Hmmm: Cory's piece for Tor.com is interesting. I got the distinct impression he's bumped into Sarah's views, but can't pin it down to an individual quote. And, taken them on board, to boot. The poker analogy certainly holds more water than the lottery one does, IMO.
The article over at Tor and the one at Boing Boing were written by different people. Apologies if I didn't make that clear.
