Dang it!  All the zeros look like eights.  Really impedes information transmission in this infographic.  Otherwise, I give him credit for not leaving out Tesla as the true discoverer of radio.  Tesla took it to the U.S. Supreme Court to protect his place as the first.  He won.  He died not long thereafter.

Now that you mention it, that zero thing is really annoying when it’s reduced in size. 8’s all over the place.

It is graphic by choice without using the graphic to add content.

Compare that with Minard’s Invasion of Russia here

Reminds me of library posters in the ‘70s.
