The future is here. It’s October 21, 2015. It’s the day that Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future Part II.

This year is the 30th anniversary of the original Back to the Future. Should we expect to find Marty, Doc, and Jennifer walking in our world? Well, maybe if you live in the oxymoronically-named Hill Valley, California where they lived (or live, or will live), I would take a careful look around today.

A number of media outlets have been doing stories this year around the anniversary and looking at whether or not any of the movie trilogy actually predicted accurately the future of 2015.



I’m not concerned about arriving at a future with self-tying shoes, though that hoverboard would be fun to try out. I wrote about all this in more detail back in March so that people could get ready.

Yeah, I’m having a little Back to the Future party today. When does it start? At 4:29 PM, of course.  Got the three films ready to go. It would be great if Marty or Doc dropped in and said hello.
