Your own personal genome

It took a decade and a couple of three billion dollars to find the first
human genome but it looks like this field is also following Moore's Law.
In today's New York Times Craig Venter the head of Celera had this to say:

 " At the end of this year we will be able to sequence the genes and regulatory
   regions in any individual in less than a week and for under one million dollars."

It would be sort of fun to have your own personal genome on your hard drive,
there is so much redundancy that if you turned it into a zip file it would be
smaller than Microsoft Word.
