Today we want you to meet Liam Boogar, co-founder & editor at the Rude Baguette. As a Californian dude now living in Paris, he is writing in English about the French start-up scene.
Liam was just a regular WriteThat.Name user. Some months ago, he wrote an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and was quite impressed to receive an answer from Philippe Laval (Kwaga’s CEO) within a couple of hours. That’s how we quickly became friends, and now we are always happy to welcome him into our office.
I first read about WriteThat.Name online. I had always been looking for a way to make email easier, as it takes up so much of my life.
I’m currently using the free plan, I think. I was planning to get HistoRecall, although I’ve had Kwaga for a few months now, so it seems silly to go back one year, as there would be a lot of overlap.
In fact Liam, there is no overlap: HistoRecall scans the 12 months preceding the day that you signed up for WriteThat.name.
Often times I am better at remembering a name, a company, or even a twitter handle than an email address, and being able to search through my contacts for any of that information has been priceless.
I’d like to have a better interface to view my contacts. When I use Mozilla Thunderbird, for example, my contacts don’t get carried over. If I had a simple desktop client that also had all of my contacts automatically stored, I could just reference that (or an add-on to Thunderbird) when I need to send emails.
Thank you so much Liam! :)
