Olympic tickets: the better way

I'm over the worst after the disappointment this morning trying to buy Olympic tickets. I eventually concluded that even over loaded servers could be a way of extending the lottery.

But the emotions around Olympic tickets have sparked interesting debates at work amongst the really smart Googlers, with many algorithms on how it could be optimised without discrimination, and my preference is the model suggested by "paulmarkj" in a comment below this post.

Or - we could simply run a race, and the first to get to the tickets, get 'em ;)
