Autistic People. So, new Research. Different social skills, not broken ones.

annsautism.blogspot.com/2019/0

"In essence, what we are demonstrating for the first time is that autistic people's social behaviour includes effective communication and effective social interaction, in direct contradiction of the diagnostic criteria for autism. We have, for the first time, uncovered empirical evidence that there is a form of social intelligence that is specific to autistic people."

In other words, different social skills, not broken ones. We have our own social signalling and can co-operate and interact effectively....with each other. Likewise, non-autistic people can generally co-operate and interact effectively...with each other. But put one of each group together, and they both tend to misunderstand one another. They don't feel rapport with one another, that sense that you just 'click' with someone and understand them.

This isn't a new theory, of course. Dr Damian Milton has been discussing Double Empathy theory for a while now. kar.kent.ac.uk/62639/1/Double%

I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."

I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)

"Our inability to understand and tell sociological stories is one of the key reasons we’re struggling with how to respond to the historic technological transition we’re currently experiencing with digital technology and machine intelligence"

Yes!

What format do you prefer for reading short stories? Boosts appreciated.

Yesterday I got a grant for writing a novel. Thanks to that, today I could chip in my part to get done.

Let's get it done!

An article on an emergent labor action among Lyft/Uber drivers:

"""
After 3 years of pay cuts, these drivers say now they have to fight back, by turning off their apps at certain times, drivers are able to artificially manipulate the Uber and Lyft apps into higher fares.

“All the airplanes we know when they land. So five minutes before, we turn all our apps off all of us at the same time. All of us we turn our apps off. They surge, $10, $12, sometimes $19. Then we turn our app on. Everyone will get the surge,” one driver says.

Does anyone here know Japanese or Swedish?

I am learning these two languages and I would like to send messages to someone of sentences I come up with or to have small text conversations to practice :)

I know Russian so if anyone wants to practice it with me I will be happy to help.

Yeah, try to work while the cat's arse is blocking half of my display.
