In the News

I recently spoke on Blog Talk Radio, specifically Nellie Jacobs' "Igniting Imagination" with her co-host of the day, Derrick Hayes. We talked 4:09-7:53 (right after Mr. Hayes' introduction), discussing my background and how I came to found A SPLINT.

Also, I contributed to Meryl Evans' recent piece on "little white lies" - in particular, I made the case for why honesty is generally the best policy, and we Aspies are especially good at it. Ms. Evans gives a good cross-section of perspectives - it's not simply "To lie or not to lie, that is the question."

Speaking of things we're particularly good at, more and more employers have come to understand that our attention to detail, strict focus and perseverance, among other traits, are advantages in many cases. Hat-tip: J. Willardston Smith.

What do you think?

EDIT: Extra hat-tip to Steve Foerster, who has since independently sent me a copy of the link about employers.

Well, congratulations to you! I have to go do some cooking before I conk out. Perhaps I'll give you a listen while I do. I think it's terrific that you're getting your thoughts out into the world and truly living what seems to be your personal mission- "building common ground". Way to go!

Okay. Just gave it a listen, and 1) it's nice to put a sound to your face, and 2) very well articulated. Ole to you! (Sorry I can't put a little accent mark over the "e" in ole- I don't know how). 3) Hope you get lots more blog followers as a result.

Does Blog Talk Radio archive their shows? I mean can I listen to your talk even though it's over?

Olé back to you Roia, and thank you very much for listening!

Mama Coyote, Blog Talk Radio archives all shows. In fact, if you click on the link I gave for the program, you should automatically start hearing the podcast.
