Author R. T. Hurlburt
Russ Hurlburt is the originator of thought sampling, inventing in 1973 the beeper that made it possible. By the early 1980s he had abandoned quantitative analysis of thought-sampling data in favor of attempting to apprehend inner experience as it naturally occurs, in the belief that phenomena should be carefully understood before they are quantified. Toward this end he created the descriptive experience sampling method (DES), authoring six books and many articles about the DES method and its results. He is also the author of a highly regarded statistics textbook.
