"In a tour-de-force, Wiggins and Jones put data in context so that we can see the values, politics, and controversies that shape our present reality. This book is truly a semester-long class bottled into a narrative fit for vacation."

Danah Boyd, founder and president, Data & Society Research Institute

"Sometimes the best way to understand the present and prepare for the future is to look to the past. This insight is at the core of How Data Happened, an ambitious and thoughtful work. Wiggins and Jones have worked together—as data scientist and historian—to write a book that will reshape how you will see the relationship between data and society."

Matthew J. Salganik, Professor, Department of Sociology, Princeton University, and author of Bit by

"This is the first comprehensive look at the history of data and how power has played a critical role in shaping the history. It’s a must read for any data scientist about how we got here and what we need to do to ensure that data works for everyone."

DJ Patil, former U.S. Chief Data Scientist

"A leading data scientist and a historian of science walk into a classroom resulting in this ambitious and bold book packed with stories about the role of data in our society. Wiggins and Jones plainly and forcefully trace why we ended up with the big data mess that we have now and what we might do about it. Instead of platitudes, they argue how today’s fights over surveillance capitalism, government access to data, and Big Tech could shape the future of data’s power in society. How Data Happened is a must read for everyone interested in how data is changing our lives."

Gina Neff, Executive Director, Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy, University of Cambridge
