Time traveler's convention

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

What is it:
The idea is very simple. We set a time and place where people from the future that have invented time machines should come back and visit us. We make this as publicly known as possible, so that people from the near or distant future have access to that information. Then, when they invent the time machine, the will come back and visit us. What should happen ideally is that many different people from different ages will show up at that time and place. If no one shows up, 2 things can have happened: 1) A time machine will never be invented 2) The convention was never known well enough so that the guys who have built it knew when to come back. So do whatever possible to get the message through. I put it in my blog with the hope that the internet (as said) will survive, and also my blog, so that future time-machinists will be able with a simple google(?) search to find the information when to come back. Good luck!
