I found a time travel machine. It can travel back in time very precisely.
I don't have any specific skills, except for my very good knowledge with programming languages and programming patterns.
I want to travel back in time to become rich, to do so, I want to bring with me the knowledge needed to invent something before it gets invented by the real inventor.
For example, I could go back in time before the invention of the paper clip and convince someone to invest in "my" idea and become rich with such invention.
The requisites are:
- I can only travel back in time once, no way back to the present;
- I can't bring anything with me, everything must be remembered by my average memory;
- once I get back in time, I must be able to take advantage of my knowledge in a realistic manner to become rich (if you tell me to invent the cure for the bubonic plague I doubt I'd be able to do it);
- There's no limit to the amount of knowledge and inventions I can bring with me, my average memory is the limit;
The solution that makes me richer will be awarded (possibly with the minimal effort)
