Someone just mentioned Ask Jeeves a minute ago, and it reminded me of the best part about Ask Jeeves: their backwards business cards.

I was staying in Berkeley for a night with an acquaintence who worked at Ask Jeeves, and he wrote his address on the back of his business card before we split up that afternoon. The front of every card shows Jeeves holding his little silver platter and a mock entry widget that reads "Who is [Person's Name]?". Cute, eh?

He noticed me chuckling at the card and thought that he should point out that I shouldn't try that.

"Well, actually, it doesn't know how to answer those kinds of questions. It won't returning anything appropriate."
