Stats Stats Stats....

I can't understand why we have such a hang up on stats. Having spent a considerable chunk of time filling in forms for someone to process and spin - does it honestly really matter?

"A formula or statistic is about as persuasive to a pomo heart as interpretative dance would be to a modern mind." (A is for Abductive Sweet, McClaren)

"In the modern world only those things that could be measured were deemed worthy and successful. In the post-modern world there is a growing awareness that the deepest and most successful things in life can't be measured. The purpose of life is not to measure. The purpose of life is to matter." (A is for Abductive Sweet, McClaren)

I kind of think they've got something there! Ok then why is it then I have a web counter!??
