Where’s the fake Steve Jobs blog?

Readers of our weekly Download column today who tried to find the blog we ballyhooed might have been disappointed when they plugged in the Web address this morning. It was there when we put the column together on Friday, I promise.

We’re as disappointed as you are (probably more so) as we were looking forward for more of the pithy commentary from an anonymous author writing in the voice of Apple Computer chief Steve Jobs. Anonymous had an especially rich week of content ahead of him or her as Apple begins its Worldwide Developer Conference in the midst of a stock-options back-dating maelstrom.

I’ve asked spokespeople at Google — which owns blogger.com, the former host of “The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs, Age 51 1/2” — and at Apple to see if they could offer an explanation for the disappearance. (Maybe it was a legal thing?) We’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, if anyone finds the secret diary, let us know.

Update: No word back from Google or Apple. Meanwhile, here’s Google’s cache of the blog, so at least you can get a glimpse of it.
