Link to article on "Where are they?" (i.e., the Fermi Paradox)

An interesting article on the "Where are They?" question (so-called Fermi Paradox) from Scientific American a few years back. I will post a few of my own thoughts on this subject later.

One glaring fallacy in this article is the assumption that technological civilizations would likely form at a more or less constant rate since the origin of the universe. Without going into long explanations, I'll just say that assumption is obviously wrong and defer further comment.
