will the real Fake Steve Jobs please keep hiding?

My current favourite blog is The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs. The identity of FSJ is unknown. This week, BusinessWeek says that FSJ might be outed.

I'm kinda sad about that. I really like the blog. Guessing who could be writing it (has to know Apple and real Steve's history very well, obviously knows the Valley quite well, and is able to be biting about absolutely everything in tech -- FSJ's comment about IBMers travelling in packs of 20 or more is absolutely dead on) is a great geek conversation topic. For all the sarcasm there, it's a great way to learn about this rather insane place we call Silicon Valley. Will that change if FSJ is outed? Will the whole thing be less pointed, and thus less funny, without the shroud of anonymity?

It could be an interesting week. Apple's gonna have to release something on Tuesday just to overshadow this story.

    Seriously. Some secrets should just stay secrets forever.

  2. I didn’t need to know the Force was really cosmic dysentery, and I don’t need to know who FSB is.
