    Have you decided on the name? Will it be "Who is Benjaman Kyle"?

    I was thinking something along the lines of "the face of amnesia, BK Doe"
    You need something to draw people in. Something like "Who is Benjaman Kyle" may not get the interest you're looking for.

    People needing to be identified is getting to be a problem..
    I'd also try to raise awareness on how to do things to protect yourself & loved ones. Things like current pictures (cell phones) dental, tattoo scars - how to report someone missing and how to search for a missing loved one.

    I just looked at the documentary page, there are no meta tags on the page source.. someone needs to add that. You need to code it with as many words as you can that apply to him.

    Hi everyone.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. As you can tell the webpage is not up yet and there is just a place holder on the site. As such, we are not trying to attract people to a site that has no content on it yet. The documentary is still in the works and will not be released for at least several months. Producing a documentary takes a lot of time, patience, and money. Most documentaries 'document' something that has already happened. However, because of Benjaman's situation the story is still being written and we are, like everyone else, hoping and praying for resolution to be the happy ending. As such, we will have a hard time knowing when filming for the documentary is 'complete' and when we should wrap and distribute the film. Thanks for your continued support, I will keep this community posted on progress.

    Thanks,
    James

    P.S. I promise the completed website will have meta tagging and proper SEO.

    To elaborate more on what I was thinking yesterday..
    Benjaman has scars on his body from what appears to be major surgery.
    I share the same as I've had 2 back surgeries.
    There are Doe's that were found dead; they also have had major surgeries; yet, no one can ID them.

    How would I feel going in for surgery if I was told I was going to be added to a major medical database? I think I'd be ok with it as long as it wasn't abused.

    I have a 16 year old; I keep a fingerprint card on her. I try to take pictures of her when she changes her hair (cut/color). I try to know what piercings she has. She recently lost 80 pounds. When I take her to the Dr, she & I argue about her height.. I was right last time she was measured. Would I be totally prepared if she went missing? Probably not; but I feel I have a better start then some parents.

    I'm getting to the point of thinking that we need a better program to keep track of people. Something along the lines of the chip people are putting in their pets.

    The way I see it, doing it now will build up the release. People will start following Benjaman and your documentary.

    We definitely agree. We're hard at work making designing. We just want it to be as useful as possible when we finally do launch it. However, we may be releasing a light version of the site before hand. I'll keep you posted.

    In the meantime, we've set up a fan page for Benjaman on Facebook. Facebook is a HUGE promotional tool. Please 'fan' Benjaman's page and invite all of your friends to do the same.

    Update

    Hello Websleuths Community,

    Brief update: Newsweek has indicated that they are planning to do a story on Mr. Kyle. In addition, we have reached an agreement with Newsweek to license some of the documentary's footage for use in conjunction with the story. I do not have a time frame for when the article will be published. However, it appears very likely that they will do an article on Mr. Kyle and when they do, Newsweek will offer an exclusive first peek at some of the documentary footage.

    So in review, two points of excitement. 1. Likely exposure for Mr. Kyle in Newsweek and 2. a first look at some of the footage from the upcoming documentary. Please pray that this exposure will help bring closure to Mr. Kyle's search. Here's to hoping that 2010 will be the year we crack this mystery and give Benjaman back his past.

    Keep an eye on WhoIsBenjamanKyle.com in the coming weeks as the site goes live. We have acquired more financing and are beginning to plan more trips to film interviews with key people in Benjaman's story.

    - James
