Fortrean Times has a wonderful 5 page piece about the father of the Second Industrial Revolution, Nikola Tesla. I’ve been obsessing over Tesla recently, partly due to David Bowie’s portrayal of him in the astoundingly great film, The Prestige (aka Wolverine vs. Batman!). Seeing as Tesla is almost singlehandedly responsible for how most electrical devices work nowadays (yet died penniless and alone), it’s definitely worth a read.
