An Interesting Quote

As soon as [the Wardenclyffe facility is] completed, it will be possible for a business man in New York to dictate instructions, and have them instantly appear in type at his office in London or elsewhere. He will be able to call up, from his desk, and talk to any telephone subscriber on the globe, without any change whatever in the existing equipment. An inexpensive instrument, not bigger than a watch, will enable its bearer to hear anywhere, on sea or land, music or song, the speech of a political leader, the address of an eminent man of science, or the sermon of an eloquent clergyman, delivered in some other place, however distant. In the same manner any picture, character, drawing, or print can be transferred from one to another place ...

Talk about ahead of his time.  It took 80+ years to have all of that in place, all thanks to a little invention of his called Radio.  (Which begat TV, Satellites, long-distance wireless communication, etc.)  I have no doubt he would have done far more himself if he had only had financing and didn't have to abandon Wardenclyffe.
