I posted a post about a blog “The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs” written by an anonymous blogger. The New York Times has pulled the mask off a blogger known affectionately as “Fake Steve Jobs,” author of “The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs,” a satirical blog based on Apple’s chief. Fake Steve is really Dan Lyons, a senior editor at Forbes.
The blog has been around for the last 14 months and nobody was able to pin point the author of the blog. Various news media was determined to discover Fake Steve’s identity. Some thought it was tech columnist Andy Ihnatko. Others thought it was actor Harry Shearer. Still others called out various well-known tech bloggers as the true Fake Steve.
“Well it had to happen,” Lyons, 46, wrote in his August 5 blog post. “Honestly, I can’t believe it’s taken this long. But as you may have heard, I’ve been busted by a newspaper reporter. My cover has been blown.”
