Forbes writer jumping to Newsweek
Dan Lyons, the Forbes writer best known for penning the “Fake Steve Jobs” blog, is leaving the business magazine to write about technology for Newsweek, reports Keith Kelly of the New York Post.
Kelly writes, “A 10-year veteran of Forbes, Lyons worked out of his home near Boston.
“‘I had a great time at Forbes, that part is hard,’ he said about leaving.
“Despite some recent difficulties in the newsweekly category, Lyons is excited about the new gig.
“‘To me it’s a really plum job,’ he said. ‘It’s a bigger circulation than Forbes and I’ll get to build some new stuff on the Internet.’
“He’s joining Newsweek on Aug. 1, and Fake Steve will come with him, according to Meacham.”
