Thanks Dominique! We often get fooled into thinking that numbers indicate truth absolutely. In some cases Klout may be accurate but I don't see how we can be sure when it is and when it isn't. It clearly is not accurate in your knowledge of Colorado or another friend's knowledge of basketball so how can we trust its algorithm. It gets really scary when Klout gets used to make decisions about jobs and room upgrades as in this Wired story: http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2012/04/ff_klout/ When Klout can start measuring what happens offline as a result of online activities, I'll start paying attention again.
