The Singularity in the Zeitgeist

As a part of public relations, I think it’s important to keep tabs on how the Singularity and related topics (GAI, FAI, life-extension, etc.) are presented in the culture at large. I’ve posted links to such things in the past, but I think there should be a central clearinghouse, and a discussion-level post seems like the right place.

So: in the comments, post examples of references to Singularity-related topics that you’ve found, ideally with a link and a few sentences’ description of what the connection is and how it’s presented (whether seriously or as an object of ridicule, for instance).

There should probably be a similar post for rationality references, but let’s see how this one goes first.
