The Forever Inspirational, Howard Armstrong

Howard Armstrong ...a true genius, and incredibly driven man. earth mover. He was made, not by politics or marketing, but by his own authentic understanding of the science behind his inventions, and his effort to drive them to fruition. What an innovator.

Most of Armstrong's life was a phenomenal inspiration. But he was ultimately broken by David Sarnoff, his long time colleague. RCA's cutthroat tactics coming after 20 years of a futile legal battle with the boastful and baseless Lee DeForest.

Despite his greatness, Armstrong's demise was largely because he never learned to compromise, always seeking the absolute victory, on his own.
