Fake Steve Reincarnated as Real Dan Lyons

- July 29, 2008 - 0 Comments

If you live in Silicon Valley or follow technology, you likely know about the Fake Steve Jobs blog, a brilliant, funny blog written by then-Forbes, now-Newsweek journalist Dan Lyons. He was anonymous for a long time and then Brad Stone of The New York Times broke his cover. Now, that Fake Steve is outed and the site is archived for your enjoyment (search Al Gore or Bono, if you’re a newbie), Dan Lyons is back online as RealDan.I think he’s off to a pretty good start. And, with the New York Times’ Joe Nocera column the talk of the town, Dan has now taken liberty to re-create one of the greatest opening lines of all-time. I, for one, still miss FakeSteve, but will still be tracking RealDan. As I heard Dan once say, “business is funny.”
