An update on the Time Traveler Convention…
I’ve sort of taken over the task of “correspondence,” which mostly means monitoring the gmail account. The account has received over 200 e-mails. Most people seem to have the same sense of humor about the event as we have, but some people are really quite nuts. The other large portion of the mail is media requests – mostly radio stations wanting a quick 5-10 minute interview.

Hi time travel buffs,
I am a reporter for The New York Times, and your plea for publicity
about your convention has been forwarded to me. I found your web site quite
entertaining and I’d be interested in talking with you about the convention
to see if it is something The Times would like to write about.
Could you give me a call at your earliest convenience? I can be
reached at 617-***-**** or 917-***-****.
New England Bureau Chief
The New York Times
Update: A reporter from the New York Times will be on Putz tomorrow morning at 11 AM.
