Fake Steve is Finished


Former Forbes writer Daniel Lyons, uncovered last year by The New York Times as the man behind the blog The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs, posted news today that his often hilarious and always outrageous character “Fake Steve Jobs” is sailing into the sunset.

Lyons wrote “Fake Steve is not really going away. He’s just taking on a new form.” But in a fashion true to form, the post left threads untied and destinations open to the imagination. Lyons begins work as a Newsweek columnist in the fall and is publishing a novel inspired by his work on the blog, according to a post today in the Times’ Technology blog.

    Ahh…I’m really going to miss that one!….it has always been completely hilarious!

    Pretty logical, what with the ‘outing’ and the FSJ book. Still, I’ll be sad to see this one go. Even once I knew it was Daniel, FSJ was still an essential read and one of the best blogs around.

    FSJ bored me to tears. Maybe it’s just because I barely ever knew his references.
