Steve Jobs and Blogging

Arik Hesseldahl of Businessweek’s Apple blog said that Steve Jobs should blog. Then he said it again. Shel Israel agrees with Arik, and I’m sure many others do too.

To me, blogging doesn’t seem to be Steve’s style, in that said style is at odds with at least two important characteristics of blogging. One is frequent posts, the other is a conversation with readers. Steve seems to be more about telling the world stuff, and having it be a big event when he does so, rather than about having an ongoing conversation.

Then there’s the other frequently-made point: that a real Steve Jobs blog wouldn’t measure up to the fake thing.
