Was Ask.com originally AskJeeves.com? I remember using it when I was younger.

Why the name change? Just curious.

Yep yep! The site was founded as Ask Jeeves in 1996 and re-named Ask.com in 2005.

Jeeves still makes an appearance at the Ask UK site -- http://uk.ask.com/

Oh didn't see the second part of your question. There are some details here from an interview in 2006 with Michael Ferguson.
