Ask Jeeves Helps With Search Engine Wedding Proposal
Barry Schwartz, a downright good guy and die-hard search engine industry tracker, was looking for a little help with his marriage proposal this weekend and called upon Ask Jeeves for a special treat. Sure we’ve all heard of the marriage proposals in baseball stadiums, hockey games, airplanes and crowded restaurants, but Barry was looking for a surprise which was more intimate and fitting for the Editor of Search Engine Roundtable and moderator a various search related forums. Barry and Jim Lazone of Ask Jeeves worked up a plan for the special proposal which Barry explains on SERoundtable ;
I just wanted to let all you know, that I am now engaged to be married to my beautiful girlfriend, Yisha.
I proposed via Ask Jeeves. I brought Yisha to my office, ask her to search on her name. While she was doing that I kneeled behind her with the ring and flowers. She typed in her name into Ask Jeeves, full name, and up came a special Smart Answer (thanks to Jim Lanzone and team) with the proposal.
