@Naysayers:

Klout is destined to take over the world.

However, unlike Google, I suspect they will use that power for evil.

Pity Klout closed down in May 2018. Anyone up for a kick-starter to restart it and invite Randall to join?

PS - and yes, oh wise people of 2011/2012, Klout was only ever basically a data-mining operation and Lithium pretty much said as much when they shut it down ("The Klout acquisition provided Lithium with valuable artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities"). https://www.lithium.com/products/klout
