Thanks for your pushback, B.J.
It's important to emphasize exactly what this tool measures at this point: the potential search ranking strength of content associated with a particular author. The tool does this using a number of industry-standard metrics to evaluate the link-based authority of both the actual content pages themselves and the sites on which they were published. In the future other metrics may be added in, such as social shares.

Hi, I understand the concern re Klout. I think this is interesting for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is looking at someone's authority as an author and in particular theme areas. Secondly, one of the key people involved is Mark Traphagen who is an expert on Google authorship. There seems no question to me that author authority will be increasingly important and hence this is a development to watch.
