The New York Times has now revealed the identity of the blogger who is known for writing on Fake Steve Jobs Blog on BlogSpot as Daniel Lyons. Lyons is currently the senior editor of Forbes.com. In the past months, many people from Silicon Valley were reading, including by both Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. This also led to rumours that Gates was writing it, but he denied it.
He posted this on his blog…
Now you’ve ruined the mystery of Fake Steve, robbing thousands of people around the world of their sense of childlike wonder. Hope you feel good about yourself, you mangina. One bright side is that at least I was busted by the Times and not Valleywag.
He also goes on saying the blog will be back next week with a new sponser.
