The Tesla That Dare Not Speak Its Name

The Wall Street Journal ran a piece yesterday about the new cult of Nikola Tesla, and how he is "Electrifying Hip Techies." Completely missing from the piece? Any reference to the band Tesla, who sort of kicked off the whole "naming things after Tesla" craze 20 or so years ago. What gives? A buddy of mine emailed the author of the piece, who replied that "I had to make certain calls on what was in and out based on space." I'm guessing Frank Hannon and Jeff Keith just didn't return his calls.
