For all time travellers

I heard about this a few days ago from GWWTG (Guy Who Went To Germany - and that's all I'm going to say about him for the time being), and then chanced upon it on the Best of Craigslist. With recommendations from these two impeccable sources I feel obliged to blog about it. On 7 May there was a Time Traveler Convention at MIT. [edit: link fixed]

Apparently the convention was a mixed success. They say "Unfortunately, we had no confirmed time travelers visit us, yet many time travelers could have attended incognito to avoid endless questions about the future".

The cool thing about this concept is that it is the First and Only Time Traveler Convention. You never need another!

Except, what if there's a competing and much cooler convention somewhere and sometime else, and you can only get funding to attend one. Huh?
