The singularity is that special moment when scientific innovation and cultural changes become so complex that the world is no longer recognizable anymore. These days, futurists all want to be the guy who predicts the next big singularity. Thus the formation of the Singularity Institute, a think tank which apparently can put an exact annual price tag on the singularity: about half a million dollars. That's how much the organization raised last year to promote the great moment when everything changes forever.
