He continued to work on his writing skills while at University, as he wrote for the Chicago Weekly News and the Chicago Maroon.

Soon after graduating, Nate found his first job, becoming an employee at KPMG in the position of a transfer pricing consultant, serving in the position for the next three years, but meantime working on his PECOTA system. In 2004 he left his job to focus on his writing career.

His luck changed when he sold his PECOTA system to Baseball Prospectus, and as a part of the deal, he became a partner at the company. He continued upgrading his system, while at the same time writing a column – “Lies, Damned Lies” -, while also developing the Elo rating system for Major League Baseball.

For the next three years, he published material under The New York Times domain, but in 2013 he sold FiveThirtyEight to ESPN, and since then he has created content in five different areas – politics, economics, science, life and sports. He has also launched a podcast, and is additionally working on a string of documentary films.

In 2012 Nate published the book “The Signal and the Noise: Why Most Predictions Fail – but Some Don’t”, which became a best seller, reaching No. 12 on the New York Times Best Sellers List of non-fiction books, which increased his net worth by a large margin.

1Statistics are often just history. They're saying, 'Here's a really fiscally rich description of something that happened in the past'. It doesn't always predict the future, especially if you don't understand the causality.
2Every day, three times per second, we produce the equivalent of the amount of data that the Library of Congress has in it's entire print collection, right? But most of it is like cat videos on YouTube or thirteen-year-olds exchanging text messages about the next 'Twilight' movie. Most of it is total fucking irrelevant noise. So unless you have good techniques for filtering and processing the information, you're going to get into a lot of trouble.
