JeevesGuy Exposed!

JeevesGuy?Kaushal Kurapati

At last we have a blog!  Now it's my turn. 

Hello everyone.  My name is Kaushal Kurapati.  Some of you might know me as JeevesGuy.   

Not anymore. I'm here to announce that it is time to bid goodbye to JeevesGuy. Adios!

The curtain comes down on our public voice on many forums for a while now: me. This does not mean we/I will stop communicating with members of the search community.  Instead, due to the enthusiastic response we got when some Jeeves-ians (We don't really have a name like "Googler" for people here.  Will that do?) posted as themselves recently, we have decided to begin posting on the forums using our own names. 

I say "names" plural, because we're also going to start having other people post besides me.  I'll still do the majority of them, but I have a day job, too!  This will enable the appropriate product owners and engineers to respond accurately and quickly to user comments on the forums. We look forward to this rich, open dialogue.

Here's a link to my first post as myself.

See you at SES NYC.  Come up and say hi!

SES New York?

You mean they are having a conference all about me, Steven E. Streight, aka Vaspers the Grate?

I'm...I'm...flattered and flabbergasted. Gosh!

Dumb Question of the Day: is ASK JEEVES a full blown "Answer Engine"? I'm haunted by a fuzzy recollection of reading somewhere that "Answer Engines" are coming, the Next Big Thing after Search Engines.

I always thought ASK JEEVES was a burgeoning (what's that word mean?) "Answer Engine".

You type a question, get an answer.

Like: Is "don't worry, be crappy" a marketing idea that has been soundly denounced and abandoned?

Vaspers the GRRRRRRRate.
