Dan Lyons’ “Fake Steve Jobs” blog was wicked brilliance. The audacity of portraying a billionaire CEO as a pot-smoking, acid-dropping, assassin-hiring, employee-terrorizing asshole perfectionist worked so well because it’s so true. And using the Real Fake Steve to skewer and satirize the tech news & players of the day made FSJ timely and funny.
A few weeks ago, Lyons dropped Fake Steve to become Real Dan Lyons. He can be interesting for sure, but funny? Yawn. Real Dan is just another cranky journalist.
