that pretty well says it, yeah
I think it’s worth noting that Tesla would have won their feud if he had been less selfless and more of a scheming, coniving low down dirty bastard [like Edison]; then everyone would likely be boo-hooing for poor misused Edison… There might even have been a car company that is doomed to failure by the Big Oil barrons named after him.
[ Yeah, maybe I should eat some lunch, I think my hunger is making me cranky.]
Thats petty much how I see it.
Nik needed to kick Edison in the nuts for what he did to Topsy. pure and simple
Here’s an odd little footnote, in the Edison vs Tesla rap battle the Professor posted the other day in the Annex (which I found thoroughly enjoyable), the Tesla character references Reddit, the implication being people know the truth about Edison ripping Tesla off and it is a popular topic on the Reddit site. Actually quite the reverse appears to be true, as far as I’ve been able to glean from reading numerous threads – due to prolific canvassing by the Tesla Motor company on Reddit, anything referencing Tesla is immediately flagged on that site. I posted my Tesla Radio webcomic on Reddit a few months back and had my account suspended for spam. Justifiable attempt by the Reddit site to prevent a car company from hijacking their site for free marketing or Edison’s tormented ghost reaching out from beyond the grave to thwart Tesla for all eternity . . . ? You decide . . .
