Why the Public Perception of Tesla is TOTALLY wrong:

Shared by Michael Michalchik.

Almost everything commonly told about Tesla is wrong! He didn’t invent AC, he didn’t battle Edison over AC vs. DC, he didn’t even have a rivalry with Edison, he didn’t want to give everyone free electricity and he wasn’t a Physics genius! Referencing primary sources I can show you why we have such a perverted view of Tesla’s real accomplishments and life.

I have a lot of videos about different elements in the history of electricity, including:

The lovely modern tesla coil movie comes with permission from Greg at http://hotstreamer.deanostoybox.com/greg/frames.htm He has some great advice if you are crazy enough to try to make some of these machines yourself.
And, as always, thanks to Kim Nalley for the great music.
