There was a very interesting documentary recently on the BBC about the evolution of radio technology.
It turned out that Marconi managed to get hold of the technology from Nikola Tesla, apparently Marconi was not a genius when it came to engineering, after which he patented the technology so that nobody else could develop it.

He then proceeded to make himself into a very rich man.

Years on we now have wifi, so while Marconi may have slowed progress he certainly did not stifle it...

This is why I think sites such as CodeProject are so important - we are working counter to this commercial greed by sharing our knowledge.

So excellent work Chris and all the code project contributorsThumbs Up | :thumbsup:
