Former Blog Hater Turned Blog Hoaxster Exposed to Be Blog Lover

Super Six Apart smarty-pants (and best use of the color purple in the blogosphere) Anil Dash on the Fake Steve Jobs dust-up:

Daniel Lyons, author of the heretofore-anonymous Fake Steve Jobs blog, which comments extensively on companies in the technology industry, was also the author of Forbes’ November 2005 cover story “Attack of the Blogs”, a 3000-word screed vilifying anonymous bloggers who comment on companies in the technology industry… My initial temptation was to mark Lyons as a hypocrite. Upon reflection, it seems there’s a more profound lesson: The benefits of blogging for one’s career or business are so profound that they were even able to persuade a dedicated detractor.

    Hee Hee Hee. There are extreme benefits of blogging. As a matter of fact blogging is now a “Profession”. It’s putting food on the table and roof over the heads of many in the blogosphere. There are even extreme talks about the form of a Bloggers Union.
    Yeah baby,
