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.
