And you thought Cyrano de Bergerac was merely a work of fiction. Well, the nose likely is. But the function of the protagonist has become a real job. No kidding. This was posted:

Yoda’s Long Lost Twin Found in a 14th Century Illuminated Manuscript. Just a curious coincidence?
In a new picture book called Medieval Monsters, published by the British Library, historian Damien Kempf and art historian Maria L. Gilbert have gathered together illustrations that highlight the great monsters of the medieval world.

"The Shoe That Grows started when Founder and Executive Director Kenton Lee was living and working in Nairobi, Kenya in 2007. One day while walking to church, he noticed a little girl in a white dress next to him who had shoes that were way to small for her feet. ... “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a shoe that could adjust and expand – so that kids always had a pair of shoes that fit?” 
https://www.theshoethatgrows.org/the-shoe.html
Over 2 billion people in the world suffer from soil-transmitted parasites and diseases. The Shoe That Grows is a better solution to help children protect their feet than just regular shoes, shoes that don’t fit, or no shoes at all. The Shoe That Grows adjusts five sizes and last five years – providing better protection and better health for children.

There is a precedent - When Klal Yisrael were in the desert for 40 years, not only their shoes, but also their clothes, grew on them as needed....

 From http://kirjonen.me/business-the-speed-of-thought/ Predictions from the book, written in 1999. When we consider the state of the computer industry back then, many of these are amazing.

Predictions

Automated price comparison services will be developed, allowing people to see prices across multiple websites, making it effortless to find the cheapest product for all industries.
People will carry around small devices that allow them to constantly stay in touch and do electronic business from wherever they are. They will be able to check the news, see flights they have booked, get information from financial markets, and do just about anything else on these devices.
People will pay their bills, take care of their finances, and communicate with their doctors over the Internet.
“Personal companions” will be developed. They will connect and sync all your devices in a smart way, whether they are at home or in the office, and allow them to exchange data. The device will check your email or notifications, and present the information that you need. When you go to the store, you can tell it what recipes you want to prepare, and it will generate a list of ingredients that you need to pick up. It will inform all the devices that you use of your purchases and schedule, allowing them to automatically adjust to what you’re doing.
Constant video feeds of your house will become common, which inform you when somebody visits while you are not home.
Private websites for your friends and family will be common, allowing you to chat and plan for events.
Software that knows when you’ve booked a trip and uses that information to suggest activities at the local destination. It suggests activities, discounts, offers, and cheaper prices for all the things that you want to take part in.
While watching a sports competition on television, services will allow you to discuss what is going on live, and enter contest where you vote on who you think will win.
Devices will have smart advertising. They will know your purchasing trends, and will display advertisements that are tailored toward your preferences.
Television broadcast will include links to relevant websites and content that complement what you are watching.
Residents of cities and countries will be able to have Internet-based discussions concerning issues that affect them, such as local politics, city planning or safety.
Online communities will not be influenced by your location, but rather, your interest.
Project managers looking to put a team together will be able to go online, describe the project, and receive recommendations for available people who would fit their requirements.
Similarly, people looking for work will be able to find employment opportunities online by declaring their interest, needs, and specialized skills.
Companies will be able to bid on jobs, whether they are looking for a construction project, a movie production, or an advertising campaign. This will be efficient for both big companies that want to outsource work that they don’t usually face, businesses looking for new clients, and corporations that don’t have a go-to provider for the said service.
An article outlining several of the key concepts and predictions in Gates' 1999 book, Business @ the Speed of Thought.

Newly discovered 3 pages of A Wrinkle in Time that didn't make the final cut of Madeleine L'Engle's novel published in 1962. See the pages here:
http://graphics.wsj.com/documents/doc-cloud-embedder/?sidebar=1&hc_location=ufi#1881486-a-wrinkle-in-time-excerpt
Madeleine L’Engle’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ has sold 14 million copies since its publication in 1962. Now, a never-before-seen passage cut from an early draft is shedding surprising light on the author’s political philosophy

Favorite quote from here below. The writer knew that we can't take for granted that people will understand the meaning of "disinterested," as it is so often misued as "uninterested."
 
We destroy the disinterested (I do not mean uninterested) love of learning in children, which is so strong when they are small, by encouraging and compelling them to work for petty and contemptible rewards — gold stars, or papers marked 100 and tacked to the wall, or A’s on report cards… in short, for the ignoble satisfaction of feeling that they are better than someone else…. We kill, not only their curiosity, but their feeling that it is a good and admirable thing to be curious, so that by the age of ten most of them will not ask questions, and will show a good deal of scorn for the few who do. – John Holt, How Children Fail
 
Did you learn to think?
Did you learn to write properly?

I was sucked into Pinterestby an email but didn't linger too long. The attraction failed when I saw this line, "Thank you to whomever wrote this."
