I’m one of those people who routinely forgets to keep in touch with friends, mostly because there are no useful cues to use as a reminder. blanco is my attempt to fill that space, and stop losing track of people. If you’re the kind of person who has a tendency to suddenly realise “oh wow, I’ve not spoke to her for over a year” then blanco may be useful to you too.

The premise is simple: assign a “contact frequency” to a contact and let blanco keep track of when you’re drifting apart. This is the sort of thing that – I suspect – we would all like to handle without the need for a specific tool, but life all too often just gets in the way of good intentions.
