First Ever Wedding Proposal via Search Engine

I just wanted to let all you know, that I am now engaged to be married to my beautiful girlfriend, Yisha.

Why am I posting this here, at a search blog? Well, because of the way I did it.

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.

I don't have much time to explain it, so go to the idea page for more information.

Also try rustybrick engagement for some other smart searches.

Thanks again to Jim Lanzone, Scott Grieder, Steve Orr, Daniel Read, and the whole Ask Jeeves team!
