Often our show is right on the cusp of big innovations and scientific leaps forward. The future is coming at us so fast, sometimes we shoot an episode, and within a month, a week, or sometimes even the NEXT DAY, a fascinating new development comes out on the very same topic. In this "where are we now" episode of Fw:Thinking - as we fast approach 2015 – we pick out a few of our favorite examples of recent developments in topics we’ve previously explored.

Which episode do YOU think we need to update next? Let us know in the comments below!

Happy New Year from all of us at Fw:Thinking!
