Joe Fernandez will be one of the speakers at our upcoming PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO on October 6. Joe is the founder and CEO of Klout, a platform that measures online influence and the impact users have on their friends and followers. Fascinated by the way individuals could instantly broadcast questions, opinions, and ideas to their trusted network, Joe started Klout in 2008 in an effort to help businesses understand this individual user impact by providing context around who a person effects and what topics they are particularly influential in. In anticipation of his conversation with PSFK around the ‘Future of Online Influence’ at the PSFK CONFERENCE SAN FRANCISCO 2011, we bring you some insights from Joe:

Who or what is the most recent person/entity you’ve followed on Twitter?

@49ers. Getting ready for the season.

What is your favorite app?

I am addicted to uber and Zaarly.

Show us the last photo you took with your phone?

RIP Tupac and Biggie

What’s the last song/album you bought on iTunes?

Kanye and Jay-Z – Watch the Throne

Take a picture of your desk area, or wherever you do most of your thinking/your work.

This is why I can’t work from home.

Where was the last place you went on vacation?

It’s been a while but last year I went to Berlin.

What do you think is the most brilliant idea/innovation?

I am kind of obsessed with mobile phones and like to switch them every few months.

 Where does your creativity come from?

I started Klout with my jaw wired shut so apparently my creativity comes from pain medication.

What’s next for Klout?

We are going to continue to help people understand and leverage their influence.

Thanks, Joe!
