This past weekend I attended the Tesla Memorial Conference including the Spirit Award Benefit and Reception. For more information visit http://teslasciencefoundation.org/iTesla/index.php/en/.
I have also been asked by Nikola Lonchar, president of the Tesla Science Foundation, http://teslasciencefoundation.org/iTesla/index.php/en/home/meet-our-president, to be a board member at large for the Tesla Science Foundation.
While at the conference at the New Yorker Hotel in NYC, I met some wonderful people who are helping further the cause of bringing recognition to the vital accomplishments of Tesla. I met the executive director of the Tesla Museum in Blegrade, Serbia, Vladimir Jelenković. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Tesla_Museum. He wants to stay in touch in hopes that I can sell my book there.
I also met Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla. Please also see his very successful campaign at http://theoatmeal.com/blog/tesla_museum where he successfully helped raise over a million dollars for the purchase of Tesla’s last lab at Wardenclyffe to turn the property into the first National Tesla Museum!
Then, I met Jane Alcorn, President of the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_Science_Center_at_Wardenclyffe. She even knew who I was, took my card, and said they’ll need some books to sell in their gift shop once the museum is completed!
It was a terrific weekend! I just could not wait to share this with you. Your support (kickstarter backers) really made it possible for me to take this important trip. Thank you again for believing in this project and I will keep you posted!
