Kickstart a Nikola Tesla docudrama Nicola Tesla has some pretty cool connections with comics, from a starring role in Matt Fraction's Five Fists of Science to creating Atomic Robo.

Start Educating Entrepreneurs, Not Employees I’ve been back from CES for a couple of days now (read all of our coverage here). After clearing out my inbox and racking my brain about a wrap-up post for the event, it finally occurred to me why it was that I’ve had such a hard time in finding a topic — I’m just not impressed.
