Only five posts since 2001--you'd think he'd get po'd at us more than once a year.
This is a detective job for someone with lots of time on their hands, or lots of paid--or unpaid--assistants. First study the posting patterns of other individuals who participate on forums that deal with themselves (sorry for the poor grammar), then examine all of the screen names for possible associations with Steve, or his interests, and finally look at the contents of the posts by the winnowed group of candidates for any clues. Run it through one of the NSA's supercomputer's (the kind used to ferrit out terrorist connections amid deception), and viola, you've got a list of suspects. in fact, if there's one person oout there who has the interest and ability to get to the bottom of this--it's Steve Jobs. Only, will will be able to trust his results?
I think there's an easier way to make Steve come out of the closet. What was that TV show, "To Tell the Truth"? Steve will have no choice but to admit his screen identitity, to avoid the embarassment of being associated with any number of AI members who claim to be him.
So get in line, and start making those claims to the SJ identity. I for one will pass, mostly because I couldn't deal with the thought of being such a superstar, especially one with an increasingly large middle-aged paunch (been there, done that--the middle-aged paunch thing--and don't want to got back, even in a fantasy). Plus, I rarely say anything nice about Apple or Steve--and I imagine then real steve would at least on average be neutral.
PS One last clue. Given the SEC investigation into the Whole Foods guy's posts, Steve has likely stopped posting. Which is another reason we all need to say we're Steve--we can compare the list of posters to this thread to AI members and narrow the likely culprit down to one of the few who was posting up until the SEC/WF story broke, but now no longer is.
