Update: A friend points out that this is a billionaire's yacht, so that should probably be read as "Duck guilty feelings".
Normally around the 1st of the month I post a list of shows that I'm considering going to in the next month or two, but this month I've got nothing
. Except for the usual monthlies at DNA
there are no
shows on my calendar for January or February. 2014. I am disappoint.

Abstract: Time travel has captured the public imagination for much of the past century, but little has been done to actually search for time travelers. Here, three implementations of Internet searches for time travelers are described, all seeking a prescient mention of information not previously available. The first search covered prescient content placed on the Internet, highlighted by a comprehensive search for specific terms in tweets on Twitter. The second search examined prescient inquiries submitted to a search engine, highlighted by a comprehensive search for specific search terms submitted to a popular astronomy web site. The third search involved a request for a direct Internet communication, either by email or tweet, pre-dating to the time of the inquiry. Given practical verifiability concerns, only time travelers from the future were investigated. No time travelers were discovered. Although these negative results do not disprove time travel, given the great reach of the Internet, this search is perhaps the most comprehensive to date.
