We cannot measure productivity

"Productivity, of course, is something you determine by looking at the input of an activity and its output. So to measure software productivity you have to measure the output of software development - the reason we can't measure productivity is because we can't measure output." - Martin Fowler

Doing a bit of research for an article, I came across this post by Martin Fowler about how we cannot really measure software productivity. It is back from 2003 but feels quite fresh.
