Released late last month, Searching the Internet for evidence of time travelers attempts to find real-world Marty McFlys by searching for information online that couldn?t have been posted without foreknowledge of the future.
"Were a time traveler from the future to access the Internet of the past few years, they might have left once-prescient content that persists today, the authors speculate.
