A serious and inspirational note: J.E. Robison

Jon Elder Robison wrote "Look Me In the Eye: My Life with Aspergers"
It is a fascinating, funny, somewhat shocking, amazingly insightful set of stories about his growing up and figuring out himself and everyone else. He started out impaired by his social and emotional disabilities, but gradually developed his passions and gifts and discovered opportunities to achieve success and recognition through them. He is inspirational and encouraging to me and many.
The following URL is a film of Robison speaking to Google employees about his book and about Aspergers/Autism. It is great. He certainly doesn't look disabled anymore.
