I was hanging out on Viralogy, and I stumbled on Seth Godin’s profile and his post about Clout. He introduces how useful it is to map out a person’s clout(or influence) on the internet, something that can tell you all your social power and the power of your influencees throughout all the different platforms. He says right now it’s a secret that the internet will not tell us yet. That’s actually the vision Viralogy has set out to do and we have successful made some giant steps towards that in the half a year we’ve been around.
We’re not anywhere close to perfect, and we still have tons of work to do before we’re successful, but we are determined to reveal this secret on the internet, Google-style. Since Seth Godin sees the same vision that we have been working on for a long time, I know he has more direction on how to do it correctly. If he becomes our advisor, I know we can realize this vision together and change the web.
The web is our oyster. We just have to figure out how to crack open the shells.
