Innovation Week – March 4, 2011

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”!

The CPO tweeted me “@ProfessorGary you know that Headline was a tongue in cheek reference to a Mashable story reported yesterday afternoon right? 😉 from @PhilipHotchkiss

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)
