Lee was able to parlay the achievements of his fictional self into prominent speaking engagements, recently appearing as a keynote speaker at Internet World Asia, and was even nominated "Internet Visionary of the Year" (one award he didn't win). This was no mere r�sum� padding, since none of the writings and research listed on his site were actually his, and many of his awards, fellowships, and prominent colleagues listed there simply didn't exist.
