"If you were going to do that in an analog era, take film photographs of everything you ate and put them in an album, or whatever, that would be really, really obsessive."

What jumped out:
"9. Giving somebody a +K is a nice gesture, but it has no effect on a Klout score."
- Are Klout users supposed to know this already? Do they? I assume that many of those +K tweets clogging up our feeds are being given out on the assumption they're benefiting the recipients, not as nice gestures.

"6. A Klout influencer who receives a perk (a gift from a brand) creates an average of thirty pieces of content about that gift."
- Thirty. That is a lot of tweets, or blog posts, or Amazon comments, or whatever constitutes a piece of content (the author doesn't specify). I guess I should be remarking on entrepreneurial spirit or the democratization of product reviews or some such thing, but honestly, this just feels a little gross.
Here are 10 things your probably didn't know about Klout and the man who created it.

Very interesting, thanks for the link. Somewhat scary, yet so obvious as to be unavoidable.

On a somewhat related note, game developer, Valve, have commented on the fact that they've noticed that some some video game users cause more players to join an online server, and some inversely drive users away. They've indicated that they're actively working on a way to reward the good players, potentially in the form of how much games cost (which they're in a good position to do, since they also own the major online game distribution network, Steam).

Some of the most fun I've had on Twitter lately was soliciting and compiling #wpg2012 tweets - Winnipeggers' hopes and expectations for the new year. Nearly 200 tweets/retweets in total (!), and many thoughtful and funny comments among them.

And since the G+ app doesn't seem to allow link previews, that's a Wired story on tiny printers, which are apparently a Thing now, and which I very much want.

"Journalists who are defending an ego scoop are engaged in an intramural competition that has nothing to do with public service, and everything to do with bragging rights." Nice round-up by +Jay Rosen.
Journalists tend to be obsessed with scoops, meaning: the first to break the news, and being seen as the first, which means getting credit for it among peers. But not all scoops are created equal. I s...

Sorry, Jonathan - didn't get this notification until now (a month later) for some reason. I think it's working pretty well, actually, in terms of lunch/coffee crowds and turnout for events. But come down some time and I can show you the ropes. :)
