Video: Here's a short documentary from Jack Flynn and Nick David about making Harris Tweed on the Island of Harris and Lewis in Scotland. You get to see the people whose lives centre around making this traditional fabric; hear their stories about how important it is to the island, their families and their heritage; and most beautifully of all, see glimpses of the whole manufacturing process, where all sorts of colours of thread are weaved together on a loom to make the tweed. It's really gorgeous.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
