Many here may not be familiar with a hero of mine - Alvin Toffler. Toffler is a futurist who is known best for his two books, Future Shock, and The Third Wave, both of which influenced me greatly. In fact to a certain extent it is true that my own business is modeled on "the electronic cottage" [in my case the electronic barn] discussed in The Third Wave. Toffler has a new book out called Future Forecast. I strongly recommend that everyone here reads it. His first two books were virtual road maps to the future.
