On the BTTFDay Bandwagon

Many, many people will be posting about Back to the Future Day ( #bttfday ).

This the day to which Doc and Marty went “into the future” in the second installment of the Back to the Future movie trilogy. So newspapers and website and probably 45% of the blogosphere will offer praise and lament for what the movie got right and wrong about the future.

I’ll echo the greetings of Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd), for this day:

“Great Scott, if my calculations are correct it is now precisely October 21, 2015.

“The future has finally arrived.

“Yes, it is different than we all thought.

“But don’t worry, it just means your future hasn’t been written yet. Noone’s has.

“Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one.”

Or this.

Maybe you’ll want to spend some time today thinking in the direction of October 21, 2045. That’s the day that is to today what today was to the original story.
