Hello and welcome to my blog – The Measure Of You. This blog is dedicated to the principle of “units for humans”, which is to say units of measurement derived from our natural environment including our own body. These, of course, are at once both intuitive and instantly recognisable. For example, no-one needs to know tell you how long a foot is.
My ambition for this blog is to create an in-depth resource for people who want to know where our original units of measurement came from – the foot, the inch, the furlong etc and present it in a way that both makes sense and is fun!
I intend to turn the blog into a book and welcome any feedback, suggestions or recommendations along the publishing lines.
