Over in another blog, Lavanya posted a comment that was off-topic there but definitely on-topic here, so I’ve ‘ported it over.
dear ms. moon,
i came across this article – “Outsourcing to the Autistic Rather Than to India” an thought of ‘speed of dark’ at once. I wonder if the people at Square One (the tech company) have read your book. there’s quite a lively discussion going as well.
the article link & text are pasted below.
I am not including the text here, as said above, because the entire article was quoted and that’s against policy in my blogs. However, it’s an interesting article on the use of autistic individuals to test software. There’s a new pilot program called Square One. So far all we’ve got are pilot programs here and there–in the midst of widespread unemployment for most skillsets, it’s hard to get anything bigger going. But those in California might well check out Square One.
