I actually made a couple copies of that article, and sent out links to it last week when I got my issue. It's a fascinating topic.
Look at people like John Nash (another good link, here) (A Beautiful Mind - His book is worth a read, as are some of his papers...WOW). The deeper into mathematics he went, the more paranoid-schizoprehnic he became. He says that some of his greatest ideas came during some of his lowest mental moments.
It has always been said that there is a fine line between genious and insanity, and perhaps Asperger's is a beginning to defining that line, or at least helping us to understand it.
