Whenever … Continue reading
A lot of people have written a lot about Klout. I have too. So, what does Klout actually mean? At it’s very core, Klout means F**K ALL. At least to me. It’s wasting valuable mental bandwidth that should be spent on solving worthwhile world problems. End of story. Can Klout please die already?
