Not exactly sci-fi related, but in case anyone's interested, MIT is holding the only time traveler convention ever on May 7.


It does bring up interesting questions though, and I'm sure they've been answered already, but if someone did show up from the future, wouldn't they be altering the past and therefore going into an alternate future (parrallel universe here). It does make for some exciting stories though, provided you do it right hehe.

NPR had a great piece about the convention today on All Things Considered sometime between 6 and 6:30pm. Try www.npr.org (http://www.npr.org/) to find it (under the All Things Considered program).

When you get back here from then/there would you mind much giving me the numbers for a winning lotto? Doesn't have to be a big one, I'm not greedy.

I remember thinking 'If they ever invent time travel, I'll come back and say hi, right about now'. And then forgot when it was.
