Quote of the Day: “In the new era, thought itself will be transmitted by radio.” ~ Guglielmo Marconi

ImageIt is interesting to note that Tesla is credited with inventing modern radio. The Supreme Court overturned Guglielmo Marconi’s patent in 1943 in favor of Nikola Tesla’s earlier patents, establishing him as the true inventor of radio. An engineer (Otis Pond) once said to Tesla, “Looks as if Marconi got the jump on you” regarding Marconi’s radio system. To this Tesla replied, “Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using seventeen of my patents.”

Just food for thought…
