The very model of a (post)modern human being

Regulars will recall my review of Ray Kurzweil's new book, The Singularity is Near. One of the author's fans, realizing that the book's length probably exceeeds the attention of span of most of us mere mortals, has condensed the Singularitarian vision into a few stanzas, sung to the tune and meter of "I am the very model of a modern major general" from the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta The Pirates of Penzance. Hilarious and good production values, to boot. Lyrics and audio file link are here.

Thanks to Boing Boing for reminding me to check out Kurzweil's website.
