Submission + - Fake Steve Unmasked (

eefsee writes: The NYT reveals (silly login required): 'For the last 14 months, high-tech insiders have been eating up the work of an anonymous blogger who assumed the persona of Steven P. Jobs, Apple's chief executive and one of the world's most famous businessmen. ... Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, Daniel Lyons, a senior editor at Forbes magazine who lives near Boston, has been quietly enjoying the attention.' Does Lyons worry that he will be held accountable for what some perceive as mean-sprited comments such as those about Linux 'freetards?' 'Yes,' he admits, but he's still planning on publishing the book 'Options: The Secret Life of Steve Jobs, a Parody.'
