New York Times has a fun story about a time travellers’ convention at MIT this weekend. It’s supposedly the first ever, and organizers say it’s the only one the world needs, because people from the future (or past) can travel to it any time they want to. The organizers seem to have a reasonable attitude about the issue, but the cops don’t seem to understand.
According to the article, the response to the event has been so overwhelming that the police have asked that anyone who hadn’t replied by Wednesday not be allowed to attend. There’s only one problem with that, which the article didn’t mention. Time travellers have the ultimate cure for procrastination. If they show up on Saturday without reservations, they can always go back to Wednesday and sign up.
