Fake Steve Jobs to speak on real Microsoft campus

Forbes technology editor Dan Lyons, who for the last year and a half has anonymously penned the must-read tech blog “The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs,” will be making an appearance at Microsoft later this month in support of his new real fake book, “oPtion$: The Secret Life of Steve Jobs, a Parody.”

According to this post, Lyons’ publisher set up the stop in Redmond, scheduled for Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. It’s likely a Microsoft-only event, as the post suggests. Microsoft regularly invites notable personalities, writers and experts onto its campus for the benefit of its workers.

Lyons’ identity was revealed by New York Times reporter Brad Stone in early August.
