AnswerBus is to AskJeeves as Google is to AltaVista?


Well … maybe. Check it out! AnswerBus

I find this pretty interesting. It’s simple, and provides a nice mechanism to change your question. I tried:

“When was San Diego founded?” that got me some unrelated org –

I changed it on the fly to:

“When was the city of San Diego founded?” and got much better answers.

AnswerBus looks like a neat tool.

I also did “where are san diego web developers?” and got some nice results. 🙂

The response output makes more sense to me than AskJeeves’ – which is very powerful, but also overly complex. This simple interface provides a facility to alter your question in a much quicker fashion. Worth a look.
