As I was doing a search on Lisa Brennan-Jobs, and a rumor piqued my interest:
http://clarioncontent.blogspot.com/2012/02/heiress-app-arent.html
Apparently Lisa Brennan-Jobs, long denied daughter of Tech-God Steve Jobs briefly involved herself in Frequency, an LA startup that developed a video app for iPads. Given Lisa's potential connections to Apple itself, one wonders why she didn't just work with the Apple Mother Ship if she was interested in developing new software.

According to the report, Lisa Brenna Jobs was involved in the development of the video app Frequency. It's always interesting to see this elusive "heiress" in some kind of spotlight. Does that make me a bad person?

Nothing that we know about Lisa Brennan-Jobs says that she's involved in tech and app development. Isn't she like a freelance writer or something?

Well...

Funny you should mention that.. On her blog she had an article posted in an LA Times Op-Ed at the end of 2009. This implies that she was in the LA-area for a time, right?

Maybe this was the time of her collaboration with Frequency?

Okay...

Isn't that a stretch? I went to look at Frequency and I didn't see any references to Lisa Jobs anywhere.

First, Lisa Brennan-Jobs and I have the same last name. :D Anyway, all searches of "Lisa Brennan-Jobs app" or "Lisa Brennan-Jobs frequency app" come up with Nothing. I doubt she really had any involvement in making an app.

Social Networks

If you look at her writings, she seems to have a fascination with social networks -- check out this tidbit from a Massachusetts Review piece of hers, published in 2006:

Somewhere at the confluence of Emily’s noticeable attributes – her small nose, her Harvard shirt, her biology textbooks, her voice – I’d imagined when I first met her, was, more or less, the whole girl. Passing faces on the street, meeting new people, I’d have to remember that life extended out, beyond what we can see. I heard that mushrooms are connected underground by a network of fine, white threads. Maybe people are connected, too – coincidences like this one made it seem so, seemed to uncover a unifying, hidden structure.

It's Steve Jobs' daughter ... btw.
Anyone can include a tag there, I don't see it but I'm not sure why it matters.

Mona Simpson, Steve Jobs' sister and Lisa's aunt is an English professor at UCLA. It would stand to reason that her niece (Lisa Jobs) has spent a good deal of time in LA.

Not really. Plenty of people live hundreds or even thousands of miles away from their aunts/uncles.

I think you're looking for something that's just not there tbh.

We already know that she doesn't live in LA -- Google indicates that she lives in NY. It is plausible, however, given that she was published in the LA Times that she's spent a fair amount of time there -- certainly enough to inspire some start up brand.
