Oh this is true. They really could not stand each other.
Oh Tesla…hands down. Edison is just a cranky old fart.
As one of my email contacts said, “What is John McCain doing in a rap video?”
The Oatmeal is correct. Alex Knapp is full of crap. Besides I have a book on all of Tesla’s patented inventions my mother gave me for my birthday.
Oh and Tesla got the patent for inventing radio IE wireless too.
They actually did a panel with the Oatmeal guy & Knapp at SXSW about this. I didn’t go though.
Edison was probably responsible for burning down Tesla’s lab. Nikola’s problem was he wasn’t a rapacious capitalist like Thomas and fell victim to being a nice (however eccentric) guy. We all know how they finish.
What gets developed is what makes a profit for the investor.
Tesla was involved in harnessing natural energies and processes that threatened that paradigm. So, no money, no lab, no development,
No No No…
Now that everybody knows that the EU and IMF steal straight out of one’s bank account and BTC is going gangbusters as more folks ditch the greedy LIBOR-rigging central banks, may the brilliant Serbian will be vindicated in our lifetime?
