Will Wolfram rewrite the physics of space-time?

Stephen Wolfram is one of the greatest mathematical and entrepreneurial minds of our generation (creator of Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha, among other things).
I didn't know he was trying to postulate a computational basis for the whole universe, based on graph networks and cellular automata. He already derived Einstein equations (special relativity and general relativity) from his model.

I found his article quite enlightening:  (quote: "I found it a bit amusing to say I had a computer in my basement that was searching for the fundamental theory of physics")
