A review of the most interesting tweets, articles, posts and thoughts on innovation, co-creation and social media that I saw this week….
@CharlieSheen NEEDS a Klout score! I loved this tweet and blog title from the chief product officer of Klout. Charlie would seem to need: (1) counseling, (2) a 12-step program, (3) guidance to “true north” or to simply get sober but a Klout score…Then his life will have meaning… “@CharlieSheen Needs a Klout score WheresCharlie RT @ckburgess @PhilipHotchkiss”
This led me to reminisce that: If we had only had Klout scores for Jesus and the Beatles in 1966, we would have known who was “bigger”!
Well… the article was referenced in the Klout blog…but still…I think the over-the-top headline while humorous did catch some of the silly earnestness being paid to an inadequate measure… As @maniactive tweeted “@ProfessorGary According to Klout, I am most influenced by people I have never heard of.”
I continue to worry that the clout of Klout threaten Twitter – Beware of inadequate measures taken seriously! KloutsClout (last week’s lead off)

More Countdown to the singurality?
As noted last week…Ray Kurzweil and others have been talking about a target date of about 2050 when computers/machines pass humans in all meaningful skills and abilities. Did we see step two of the singularity on Jeopardy where Watson, an IBM computer, handily beat the human competition?
