in reply to (offtopic) Geekery may lead to autistic children

I saw this article on Slashdot too. I think maybe my dad - who worked in IT (it was DP then of course) - has Asberger's. He thinks it's a possibility too, although he's never been diagnosed as such. But he shows some of the symptoms.

We've talked about it - in an intellectual way, naturally! I'm sure I don't (have it), but then my mum's completely different to my dad. Luckily my girlfriend's personality also shows no tendency towards Asberger's.

Asberger's Syndrome, by Tony Attwood, is good.
