Yesterday, I discovered that I'm a zero. At least I assume I am (or rather hope I am).
I read an article about Klout, a name I had heard and knew nothing about.
Because I do not partake of the pleasures of social media, I must not be on their radar screen or search engine or whatever magic they use to find, evaluate, classify, and upset (anyone with a big ego and low score) people.
Perhaps, I could raise awareness for my collection of best-kept-secrets of American “literature”, but do not crave notoriety or riches. I certainly do not need some algorithm to take notice and rate me any higher than zero. I have never lusted after clout, so have no need for Klout.
