The BBC reports that search engine Ask Jeeves is about to drop the ‘Jeeves’ character that features on their website. Some people are up in arms and have started a ‘save Jeeves’ campaign with associated blog.
I am in two minds. I don’t really like the Ask Jeeves search engine so much as it’s not so easy to find myself on it, and I am really very vain.
But on the other hand I like the PG Wodehouse connection. We live in a very un-PG Wodehouse-esque world (Can I say that? I suspect not.) and I think a little more PG Wodehouseness (ditto) would be a good thing for us all.
I found this piece of last weeks news on the Drawn weblog.
