Senior Vice President of Ask Jeeves, Jim Lanzone, is a 20-times-a-day visitor of Bloglines who checks Bloglines for updates on news, blogs, and his fantasy football team, according to a report in San Francisco Business Times.

The report quotes Lanzone has saying: “I began seeing how an integration (with Jeeves) would make sense. Being a fan of the service, I reached out to Mark Fletcher [Bloglines CEO] and set up lunch”

The first meeting is said to be negotiated in September in San Carlos’ A Tavola restaurant, and a subsequent meeting was held in November at a Berkeley noodle shop over seared ahi tuna.

We say that as much as we love Bloglines, 20 times a day is an unhealthy obsession.
