The Future Is Now

Leaving a "never expiring" message for someone to find you has its benefits.

Just because are you thinking (today), "Gee, I'd like to get in touch with my buddies from Frathouse XYZ from the 1980's", doesn't mean that your buddies are thinking the same thing -- today. But perhaps they will be in a month, 6 months, or a year from now.

Leaving a message in Last I Saw You today will ensure that when your buddies do think of Frathouse XYZ a year from now, you will get found!

Names not necessary!

Finding people you knew (or leaving a message so they can find you) when you don't know their name (or full name) is not a problem with Last I Saw You. Simply use time, place, and make use the of the Keywords.

For example, say I wanted to leave a message for someone and knew him only as 'Dave'. We had done some mountain biking in Moab, Utah back in the '90s.

I would add a new message and select the date range, Country of 'USA', State of 'Utah', and would type 'Moab' in the City field. In Keywords I could put 'mountain biking'. Since I know Dave's first name I could put it in the First Name field for 'Person I am Looking For', but this is not necessary.

Now, when Dave does a search for anyone he mountain biked with in Moab, Utah in the '90s, my message will pop up!

Last I Saw You is released

Finding someone you have lost track of, even using the internet, is not always easy. And it may cost you money you don't have or want to spend.

On the flip side, the person looking for you may have the same issues.

Add to this the fact names change (or you may not know their name), you didn't go to school with them (so sites like may not help), you don't know their age and don't want to pay (such as with and others) -- a new site seemed necessary.

Last I Saw You allows you to leave information about yourself and the person you are looking for, indefinitely. The person you wish to reconnect with can search for you, and if they leave a message on the site you can search for them. You can search by any combination of names, place, time, relationship, or something particular to the last time you saw them.

Think of it as an electronic-message-in-a-bottle, just waiting to be picked up and read.
