I completely sympathize with this perspective, but I would ask you NOT to punch me in the face. Despite my better judgement I joined.
Look at Klout this way: it’s something else to feel inferior about! (Cause life doesn’t really offer us enough opportunities like that without a little technological help.)
Think of how awesome it will be when the technological singularity arrives, and we’ll have the chance to compare ourselves (unfavorably) to our toasters, as well as other humans.
Note: You can find me on Klout here, where I’ve just learned that Klout thinks I’m “influential” on the topic of shoes. (So we don’t have to worry about that singularity yet.)
