As the Apple Turns 2 is billed as “a parody of As the Apple Turns, a humorous news site created by Jack Miller.” AtAT went dark with its last post on 12 October 2005 without as much as a cheeky explanation as to when, if ever, it would be back. Tomorrow will be seven months since Jack’s last post at AtAT and people are starting to wonder.
My guess is that Jack got either: a) a girlfriend, b) married, c) a job, or d) burned out. As someone who has been publishing a Web daily for over 10 years I can relate to any of the above. It would just be nice to hear it from the horse’s mouth in some sort of funny last post.
UPDATE: 2006-0515:
Jack is married and has a 3-year-old, Anya, who has her own homepage at mac.com. So yeah, he probably has really good excuses to not be writing witty commentary for (practically) free.
Paulo Rodrigues’ AtAT2 is a fine parody (today’s episodes are “With G6, Apple’s Timbers Shivered” and “Apple Cuts iPod Tax”) but even Rodrigues admits that “our lameness is not at all intended to reflect poorly on the original site.”
