Over the course of the year Google themselves alluded to and the sentiment from many industry thought leaders was that authorship would become increasingly important in establishing subject matter authority. Even so, as recently as August a Conductor study found that only 9 percent of the top tech blogs fully implemented authorship

Excellent article. We have implemented author rank on our blog some time ago. I love the logic behind it, but it does not always appear to be working. I still get content showing without my image etc, then other times it is there. We also have these issues with our contributors images too. I hope these are just teething problems and get sorted out in time.
