Remembering Nikola Tesla on his birthday

Today is Nikola Tesla’s birthday (lived July 10, 1856 – January 7, 1943) and I, for one, will be remembering him for his enormous contributions to our hobby.

If you’re not familiar with Tesla,  I highly recommend Margaret Cheney’s book, Tesla: Man Out of Time. In the meantime, I would at least encourage you to read his page on Wikipedia.

And if you’re in the mood for a mixture of fact and funny, check out The Oatmeal’s comic, “Why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived.” (Profanity warning!) In fact, Matthew Inman, the comic artist behind The Oatmeal has raised over $2 million dollars to create a Nikola Tesla museum in New York. Amazing…Looking forward to visiting that.

My thoughts? We need more Nikola Teslas on this planet–clearly, a man ahead of his time.

Hat tip to my buddy, Skip Arey, for sharing this dynamic photo of Tesla.
