A little unfair to the memory of Edison - he was a heavyweight who didn't pull punches, but Land too used every shot in his locker, as well as being a consummate showman.

Anyone leading their organisation 'from the front' gets interesting when their human errors show through - Land's big one was when he persisted in pushing through the Polaroid 8mm system, a total disaster just as VHS home video was coming in. He never recovered from it & was ousted from his own company.
