A Con For The Ages: Becky points out there's a Time Traveler's Convention coming up.

Actually, if they get their way, it will be the Time Traveler's convention, due to the convenience that time travel will afford. Any time traveler, from any time, any where, should be able to make it.

Unless there's some kind of temporal black hole around Boston on that day that makes it impossible for time travelers to get there. It's hard to plan for science you don't understand--like, what if somebody who didn't understand radio held a listening party at the bottom of a concrete radiation bunker? It just wouldn't work.

But I really wish these guys all the best, and I hope to be able to attend someday.

What, you want to know when it is? What does it matter?

The way I see it, if it turns out to be worth attending, then it means we'll be able to go whenever we want.

True that we'd (theoretically) be able to go whenever we want, but we'd need to know *when* to travel back to...which is May 7, 2005, 10:00pm EDT (08 May 2005 02:00:00 UTC). If this does work, I wonder if it will affect this timeline or if only future timelines would be affected. Who's to say since you are right, it's a science we don't yet understand. I wish them the best too. It's an interesting idea.
