Alvin Toffler, R. I. P.

The New York Times: Alvin Toffler, the celebrated author of “Future Shock,” the first in a trilogy of best-selling books that presciently forecast how people and institutions of the late 20th century would contend with the immense strains and soaring opportunities of accelerating change, died on Monday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 87.

I reread FUTURE SHOCK a few years ago. It was astonishingly prescient about how difficult it would be (is) for people to adapt to the rate of technological change...and that was based on seventies technology!
