Submission The Real Bill Gates Behind Daniel Lyons' FSJ->

shillhunter writes: Forbes' Dan Lyons, author of the Fake Steve Jobs blog, decided it would be entertaining to parody the unplugging of ThinkSecret by pretending his own blog was under threat from Apple. Except that in order to do that, he had to stop pretending to be FSJ and start pretending that the real Steve Jobs was threatening him. That's where he left the world of parody and reentered the familiar territory of lucrative scandal. Even before starting FSJ, Lyons jumped to follow Microsoft's marketing message with SCO against Linux, and continues to follow closely in his "People Ready," corporate-savvy, yet comical blog. His readers just haven't realized it yet. Daniel Lyons Cries Wolf: The Real Bill Gates Behind the Fake Steve Jobs
