He was the man who caused the creation of the word "futurist."

Futurist wrote broadly influential bestsellersBy David Henry

Alvin Toffler, an author whose visions of accelerating social change guided Chinese leaders, American politicians and business moguls through the best-selling books “Future Shock” and “The Third Wave,” died June 27 at his home in Los Angeles. He was 87.
Toffler Associates, the Reston, Va.-based consulting firm he co-founded with his wife, Heidi Toffler, announced the death but did not give a cause.
Mr. Toffler wrote more than a dozen books charting the cultural shift from manufacturing-based economies to those driven by knowledge and data in the 20th century. Working with his wife, he predicted the unfolding of what he coined “the Information Age” and became a guru of sorts to world statesmen.
“Nobody knows the future with certainty,” he said in an interview with the China’s People’s Daily newspaper in 2006. “We can, however, identify ongoing patterns of change.” . . .
