Tinyblu helps you stay in touch with the people who matter to you, by keeping track of how long it's been since you last interacted. Here's how it works:
Let's say you want to keep in touch with Larry Lessig. First, you add a lifeline for him, choosing how often you'd like to interact (days from to ) and a grace period (days from to ).
Your new lifeline shows up in the list like this:
Next, you add an update recording the last time you interacted with Larry. You enter the date of the interaction and a short description like "coffee" or "dinner", and you can also add longer notes if you want to. (Everything you add on Tinyblu is private to your account and not shared with anyone.)
Your lifeline now shows up in the list like this:
Some time passes and the lifeline turns , indicating that it's time to hang out again:
Some more time passes, and the lifeline turns , indicating that you're really out of touch!
At this point, Tinyblu sends you an email reminding you to schedule something with Larry. The two of you meet up again and have a nice chat. Then you go to Tinyblu and update Larry's lifeline:
Great job staying in touch with Larry!
