i would go 200 yrs forward... grab an sports almanac (cant do to much damage with that) and a few tech devices (communication device being one of them), things that i can easily put in a small bag.
come back and make bets here and there.. to make easy money.
start a small tech company to reverse engineer the devices and its tech.
"Cant do much damage with that..." is just what they say in all time travel movies and we all know what happens in the TT movies. Dr. Who has to bail the planet out of trouble.
How do you know the tech you reverse engineer was not destined to be reverse engineered by you in the first place? I can't parse TT thinking because so many what-ifs and "suppose I do this or that's" arise.
