Happy 115th Nikola Tesla

Well, here goes the new blog. And what better time to begin this project than today?

Today is the 153rd anniversay of the birth of Nikola Tesla. I've always been charmed by the man. Just now, I've been reading again about the "Current Wars" in the book "Empires of Light," another telling of the Tesla/Edison rivalry. It never ceases to amaze me what this guy was able to think up over a hundred years ago. I have to wonder if some of Tesla's unfulfilled dreams - like wireless transmission of power - might come to pass with all the advances in technology since then.
