“I love this book. Douglas Hubbard helps us create a path to know the answer to almost any question in business, in science, or in life . . . How to Measure Anything provides just the tools most of us need to measure anything better, to gain that insight, to make progress, and to succeed.”

“During World War II, computers using electromechanical relays usually were not used for text analysis. Instead, they were mostly used for numerical calculations—artillery firing tables, simulations of neutron interactions in the design of the atom bomb, and so on. But after the war, one of the earliest applications of the new vacuum tube–based computers was the U.S. Census. In fact, in 1951, the U.S. Census Bureau was the first to buy the new UNIVAC I—a computer bigger than your car and with 80,000 times less memory than a postage-stamp-size iPod Nano. The influence of computing on painting the big picture was just beginning.” – Hubbard, Douglas W. (2011-05-03). Pulse: The New Science of Harnessing Internet Buzz to Track Threats and Opportunities.
