Finally! A Website For The Forgetful, Disorganized, And Unlucky

According to the CEO of Found in Town, Chicagoans leave an average of 120,000 cell phones in taxi cabs each year. Get it together, Chi! Found in Town is a just-launched website for the recovery of lost items (not just cellies!) in Chicago. This free service lets you register, sends you identifying labels for your stuff (with a unique-to-you pin number), and then connects you with your lost stuff after it has gone m.i.a..! We think this is a genius solution to the inevitabilities of taxi cab culture, and, with the help of a few good Samaritans, it might erase the woes of Chicago's most forgetful. Sign up (for free), then start protecting, like, everything you own.
