Just a couple things today, Tesla fans.
First off, the website for the movie-to-be, Charged: The Story of Nikola Tesla, which I think has been in pre-production for a quite a while. This is exciting on a number of levels, namely: 1.) It will deal with Tesla's personal life, rather than focusing solely on his contributions to Science(!), and 2.) The website claims that Michael Nyman is involved. Nyman + Tesla = ♥. The Tesla Memorial Society of New York has a page about Tesla and his good friends, the Johnsons, here.
Next up is io9's somewhat misleadingly titled list of Everything You Need to Know About the Madness of Nikola Tesla. I never knew that our very own moon has a crater named after him!
Besides their great general Tesla informational site, PBS provides some neat middle school science lesson plans in Tesla for Teachers.
And finally, while I am loath to celebrate theratfinkEdison, this is just fun: Tesla v. Edison Mad Lib.
