The Marconi Machine

Erik Larson describes the Marconi Machine pretty well but I think it would help if we saw some images from the time to understand what Marconi’s Machine looked like as well as what some of his experiments looked like as well.

These images are from the Library of Congress.

Erik Larson On Ideas

This is a great Wall Street Journal interview Erik Larson gave back in March of this year where they ask how he gets his inspiration. He also gives a little inside baseball on the publishing industry and what he his process is when forming his projects. It’s a lot of information in two questions!

Follow this link to walk the video. I couldn’t just put┬áthe video here due to the WSJ’s website code. There is an ad, wait for it to pass and you’ll get to the interview. It is 5 minutes long.
