Amanda Baggs – advocate for autism
I was going to post about the article in New Scientist on sociable computing that featured Amanda Baggs’ latest video on YouTube. Then Amanda made it onto network TV in the USA. She did a fantastic job raising autism awareness and promoting the ideas of autism acceptance and neurodiversity. Thank you Amanda.
This must have cost her a lot in terms of nervous energy and sensory overload. Thank you again, Amanda for sacrificing your time and energy and privacy. And for anyone else reading this, please show your appreciation by following these links.
