Alvin Tofler the futurist guru from America passed away yesterday. I remember I had read his book The Third Wave more than a decade ago. A hugely influential book worldwide predicting the transformation of civilization in the information age.
Read a bit about Alvin in Wikipedia today and was pleasantly surprised that his last book Revolutionary Wealth was published in 2006. Both Powershift and Revolutionary Wealth are in my bucket list. Alvin will remain by far one of the greatest thinkers of modern era who read the shift to information age correctly and influenced some of the most important people in politics and business in the past few decades.
Alvin left behind an indelible mark on the world and will always be remembered for his exemplary thoughtful and profound analysis.
