Singularity on Comedy Central

I don't watch much TV, but I try to catch 1 hour of priceless comedy each night - the back to back entertainment of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Based on this week's Singularity coverage on Comedy Central, I can only assume that our little concept is approaching escape velocity.

It was a banner week for The Singularity on Comedy Central. First, Ray Kurzweil was featured (skewered) on the Daily Show as an interviewee of investigative reporter Samantha Bee. Her "Futureshock" series was quite entertaining - and though Ray looked a bit out of sorts, he was certainly a good sport to take one for the team.

The next day, Steven Colbert featured theoretical physicist Janna Leven. Dr. Leven held her own ground as she and Colbert discussed The Theory of Everything, unicorns, and her new book about the Turing Machine.

Her video is in 3 parts starting here:
