Submission + - Find Friends Using Vanity.. Powered By Google

Lynn Wallenstein writes: "I just finished my public beta of Long Time Lost, my first software app. Long Time Lost is a free "service" (more so it is a software app written by someone who had some spare time, good programmer friends, a little bit of creativity and a lot of coffee) that allows you to create a "search" for someone you lost touch with. That "search" is then indexed by Google (and other search engines) and then when that person you are looking for (or someone who knows them) does a "Vanity Search" (the process of searching for one's own name on Google... we know you do it!) they find your "search" and can respond to you and reconnect. All information is handled through the system so your private information like your email address isn't out there on the net. It's new, it's Web 2.0, it's powered by Google, it's Ruby on Rails... and it's FREE :) http://www.longtimelost.com/"

To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk. -- Thomas Edison
