After all, I extend volume discounts to my best clients and would expect all vendors to do the same. It’s a sound capitalist principle, in my view. So there are inevitable inequities to the system that I understand and even support. But there’... (more)

Clout vs. Klout: Why They Aren’t the Same Thing, And Never Will Be

There’s been a lot of noise lately about a company called Klout, which recently rounded up another $30 million in venture capital funding from several big firms. Klout, for those who don’t know it, attempts to put a single numerical value on your online influence across social-media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
