Searching for Time Travelers

I saw this article in io9 last week: "Does the internet prove that time travelers are visiting us? (No.)" And I actually read the whole thing. (Okay, I skimmed it.) But it got me thinking...

(I mean, they published their findings, so future people know there was someone looking for time travelers. Wouldn't you be careful about things like that?)

What if you could go back in time? Would you want people to know? Would you do everything in your power to make sure no one found out?

  1. I probably wouldn't want people to know--as if they'd believe me. I wouldn't advertise it much because, well, those guys who spent their time proving that there are no time travelers on the internet are kind of a joke.

    I bet I'd be able to write some killer history papers :)

  2. I'd have to think long and hard about going back in time. Aside from how I might affect my own future if I did so, how would it affect everyone else's? What might be changed?

    Butterfly effect.
