This introductory talk to the Singularity Summit 2011 differs from other talks to be given in that it does not attempt to look forward but rather looks backward in time  over the interval to identify and track  the progress in technologies, and plots the metrics that are presumably relevant to any future Singularity.  The Singularity is by nature a tipping point and if we hope to influence it’s course and effect we must necessarily predict it rather than experience it, for once it has happened, there will be no going back.
