Technology and the world of fiber


We live in an ever changing world. The Greek philosopher Ηράκλειτος (Herakleitos; Heraclitus) of Ephesus (c.535 BC – 475 BC) said it best, “The only thing constant in life is change”. Fiber and the making of yarn into cloth is up there with the oldest professions. For the longest time there has been little change. Fast forward to this century and the computer has twisted fiber into new gyrations.

Apps, QR codes, eMags, Pinterest and Twitter parties are at the forefront of fiber.
