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. Alternatively, such information might have been placed on Internet by a third party discussing something unusual they have heard. Such content might have been catalogued by search engines such as Google...or Bing...or remain in posts left on Facebook...Google Plus...or Twitter.
