Afsløret Part II

Forfatteren til parodi-bloggen The Secrect Diary of Steve Jobs – også kaldet Fake Steve – er nu blevet afsløret. Den begavede impressionør var redaktøren Daniel Lyons fra Forbes magazine.

The mysterious writer has used his blog, the Secret Diary of Steve Jobs, to lampoon Mr. Jobs and his reputation as a difficult and egotistical leader, as well as to skewer other high-tech companies, tech journalists, venture capitalists, open-source software fanatics and Silicon Valley’s overall aura of excess.

Til efteråret skulle Lyons ellers udgive en anonym satire-roman med Apple-chefen som latterliggjort jeg-fortæller. Men romanen afslørede Lyons:

Last year, his agent showed the manuscript to several book publishers and told them the anonymous author was a published novelist and writer for a major business magazine. The New York Times found Mr. Lyons by looking for writers who fit those two criteria, and then by comparing the writing of “Fake Steve” to a blog Mr. Lyons writes in his own name, called Floating Point (floatingpoint.wordpress.com).

Fake Steve kommenterer selv misæren her.
