The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs

Heather Green

You've heard of the anonymous blog. You know about celebrity blogs. Now, how about the celebrity blog written by an anonymous writer?

Yes, it's the Secret Diary of Steve Jobs...which definitely isn't written by the head of Apple.

Whoever it is knows his Jobsology, keeps on top of the news, and has the appropriate level of snarkiness needed for a parody.

Heather, I think this will be a big trend. As I've said before (and no one has paid much attention), I think this type of blog will take off, blending fact and fiction and adding new story lines not just for tech ceos, but also TV characters.

By the way, sorry I've been blog absent. I took the computer to Wisconsin and back, but was almost never in Wifi-landia, and almost always engaged in family stuff. We also put 2,000 miles on a rental car in seven days. Quite a feat. I'm flying out to Oregon in a couple days, but I have more empty time there, and a nearby Starbux for blogging

Boy oh boy, Steve Jobs must have more blog posts based around his activities. Maybe not as much as George Bush, but substantial for sure.

Steve...welcome back to Wifi-landia ;-)

What's amazing is - if you look at the comments on aforementioned blog- that there are some folks that apparently believe that this is really Steve Jobs writing his blog... and then get all indignant in the comments section when they realize its not! Or even funnier, post serious comments like they think Steve Jobs is really reading this stuff (which he very well might be :-)

It appears that the blog was either removed or deleted and has been set back up again at http:thesecretdiaryofstevejobs.blogspot.com

Nevermind, At least it is back up and running.

Just to let you know, I'm a big fan of this blog.

David, thesecretdiaryofstevejobs.blogspot.com is not the real fake steve jobs blog. Just someone trying to imitate the blog.

This is the real fake steve jobs blog (http://fakesteve.blogspot.com/) you guys have been talking about.
