Did you see the sweet article in the Times about Fake Steve, the blogger who pretended to be Steve Jobs?
Two wonderful posts just in the last week:
1. He fesses up to getting caught, and twits the blogerati for having been unable to ferret him out for 6 months, when the Times did it in a week.
“One bright side is that at least I was busted by the Times and not Valleywag. I really, really enjoyed seeing those guys keep guessing wrong. For six months Dr. Evil and Mr. Bigglesworth put their big brains together and couldn’t come up with the answer. Guy from the Times did it in a week. So much for the trope about smarty-pants bloggers disrupting old media.”
2. Hilarious take on Ruprecht’s lassooing of WSJ.
“Meanwhile I just want you to know how excited all of us in Silicon Valley are to see you guys finally getting to experience first-hand the ‘creative destruction’ that you’re always celebrating in your own pages.”
Fake Steve is really Daniel Lyons, senior editor at Forbes. For the first time ever, I like Forbes too. What a hoot!
