Conversations with a time traveller

I know that many times I've imagined what it would be like to time travel fifty years into the past and spend a week in 1955. Would I share the inventions and ideas I know from the year 2005? On a similar note I've been thinking what it would be like to meet someone who has travelled fifty years into the future, spent a week in 2055 and then returned. What questions would I ask on their return? What changes could have happened in the year 2055? Trying to guess what ideas and insights the traveller would share is - for me - an alternative entry-point for creative thinking. It is, in effect, a kind of 'rebranding' of creativity.

What other entry-points for creativity and ways to rebrand it are possible?
