Ah, Tommy, the article is by the author Jim Holt who writes for The New
Yorker and the New York Times Magazine among others. Try here for a bit of
bio. Authors sell to those who will
pay them, even MS.

The article is a report on the current state of thinking about the really
deep future by people who are at least aware of recent developments. I
wouldn't take it as locked in plan. :-)
