The Time Traveler Convention – May 7, 2005

The Time Traveler Convention
May 7, 2005, 10:00pm EDT (08 May 2005 02:00:00 UTC)
East Campus Courtyard, MIT
42:21:36.025°N, 71:05:16.332°W
(42.360007,-071.087870 in decimal degrees)

What is it?

Technically, you would only need one time traveler convention.
Time travelers from all eras could meet at a specific place
at a specific time, and they could make as many repeat visits
as they wanted. We are hosting the first and only Time
Traveler Convention at MIT in one week, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Why do you need my help?

We need you to help PUBLICIZE the event so that future time
travelers will know about the convention and attend. This web
page is insufficient; in less than a year it will be taken
down when I graduate, and futhermore, the World Wide Web is
unlikely to remain in its present form permanently. We need
volunteers to publish the details of the convention in
enduring forms, so that the time travelers of future
millennia will be aware of the convention. This convention
can never be forgotten! We need publicity in MAJOR outlets,
not just Internet news. Think New York Times, Washington
Post, books, that sort of thing. If you have any strings,
please pull them.

Great idea, I'd love to help! What should I do?

Write the details down on a piece of acid-free paper, and
slip them into obscure books in academic libraries! Carve
them into a clay tablet! If you write for a newspaper,
insert a few details about the convention! Tell your
friends, so that word of the convention will be preserved
in our oral history! A note: Time travel is a hard problem,
and it may not be invented until long after MIT has faded
into oblivion. Thus, we ask that you include the latitude/
longitude information when you publicize the convention.

You can also make an absolute commitment to publicize the
convention afterwards. In that case, bring a time capsule or
whatever it may be to the party, and then bury it afterwards.
