[Nettime-bold] <BTW>if Tesla=true then Marconi=??</BTW>

Credit belongs to Tesla, not Marconi

Joan Bryden’s Dec. 26 article “Captain Canada” 
Reinvents himself, said Brian 
Tobin is ready to take on the job of making 
Canada a name in the world of 
science and technology,
“The last event he planned before quitting to 
return to federal politics was 
next summer’s 100th anniversary of Italian 
inventor Guglielmo Marconi’s 
first wireless transmission from Signal Hill in 
St. John’s”.
My intention is to introduce readers to the fact 
that the real father of the 
wireless transmission was Nikola Tesla (Please 
read the book of Marc J. 
Seifer, “Wizard The life and Times of Nikola 
Tesla – Biography of a Genius” 
, highly recommended by the American Academy of 
the Advancement of Science).
It is known that Nikola Tesla has field patent 
applications numbers 645576 
and 649621 for basic radio, on September 2nd 1897 
and those were granted him 
in 1900. Marconi’s application number 763772 of 
November 10th 1900 was 
turned down.
Besides that and Tesla’s lawsuit for fringed 
patent law, Marconi was awarded 
the Nobel Prize in 1911.
The U.S. Supreme Court decision, Case No 6369 of 
June 21st 1943, was that 
Marconi’s patent was invalid and favored Tesla’s 
patent which had priority.
Unfortunately for Tesla himself the Court 
decision was too late. He died 
five months before that, on January 7th 1943. 
(Read this in latest book of 
Margaret Cheney – Nikola Tesla Master of 
Tesla new that Marconi’s achievement was 
predicated on the use of his coil, 
oscillators, and general design which he had 
spelled out in lectures years
