“What I love about the consumer market, that I always hated about the enterprise market us that we come up with a product, we try to tell everybody about it, and every person votes for themselves. They go "Yes" or "No". And if enough of hem say Yes, we can get to work tomorrow, you know? That’s how it works, it’s really simple. As where the enteprise market is not so simple. The people that use the products don’t decide for themselves, and the people that make those decisions sometimes are confused.” — Steve Jobs at the D8 Conference, June 2010 (via storiesofapple)

“Social research differs fundamentally from advocacy research. Advocacy research refers to research that sifts though evidence to argue a predetermined position. Lawyers engage in advocacy research in attempting to prove the guilt or innocence of defendants. Special interest groups engage in advocacy research when trying to influence the vote of lawmakers on a particular bill. The aim of advocacy research is to convince others to think or act in a given way. Hence advocacy research presents evidence selectively, focusing on supporting evidence and suppressing contrary or inconvenient evidence.” — Glenn Firebaugh, Seven Rules for Social Research  (via approachingsignificance)
