Dataclysm  free pdf A "New York Times" Bestseller An audacious, irreverent investigation of human behavior and a first look at a revolution in the making Our personal data has been used to spy on us, hire and fire us, and sell us stuff we don t need. In "Dataclysm," Christian Rudder uses it to show us who we truly are. For centuries, we ve relied on polling or small-scale lab experiments to study human behavior. Today, a new approach is possible. As we live more of our lives online, researchers can finally observe us directly, in vast numbers, and without filters. Data scientists have become the new demographers.

He charts the rise and fall of America s most reviled word through Google Search and examines the new dynamics of collaborative rage on Twitter. He shows how people express themselves, both privately and publicly. What is the least Asian thing you can say? Do people bathe more in Vermont or New Jersey? What do black women think about Simon
