Attention: The Future

OK, this is the best thing I've read in a while. Some folks at MIT are planning a Time Travel Convention for next Saturday; time travelers from the future are asked to make an appearance. Do your part to publicize this event in every way possible. Carve it in stone. Embed it into whatever you write today: fiction, a memo, computer code, what have you. Let the future know that we want them to show! The relevant time and coordinates are:

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)

This is my favorite part:

>I'm from the present, and I'd like to attend, but I can't!

>No worries! If time travel is invented in your lifetime, you can always come later.

I also want to know what they're going to do if no time travelers show up. I'm picturing this whole crowd standing around in the courtyard going, "ANY MINUTE NOW!"
