I can't really imagine the local groups being incorporated, so legal issues shouldn't crop up. What would they have to incorporate for? Buying a clubhouse? :lol:

Like what you wrote on suggestions but perhaps ,not all things at any one meeting.. Advocacy in the community . Maybe important but . There we are inviting AS peeps to interact with N Ts . Not terribly apetizing , might think, at least initially . Internal support , just being comfy with one anothe...

I think that's a cool idea as a way to geographically list small groups. I'm thinking of something far different though. Rather than organize (ie compile) a list of small groups that form, I'm talking about an organization devoted to serving and representing primarily adults with autism. The follow...

Okay, a little more detailed than I was thinking... I was only thinking about the architecture and urban planning side of things (I really can't wait to get started on our neighbourhood plan design code!). Ironically, a lot of what you suggested is part and parcel of the traditional city design (rea...

Anyone else doing it this year?

I have put off writing my novel for a month, because I think it may be easier to do in November when there will be a lot of other people doing so. I have it all planned out, though.

So there'd be a forum for each country, say, and threads for the regions there. Or perhaps we just need a single forum for all of them, but I can imagine the number of threads would get unwieldy. Maybe have a stickied index, and an understanding of what the areas are named by (for example, in the UK...

Here: It's both nice and too bad that there are people from all around the world here; many will never be able to meet each other face to face even if they wanted to. It would be very nice if Wrong Planet had a sub-forum called "Local/regional discussion," whose thread topics were all req...

Okay. Let's get Alex to add a geographical forum and see what happens. Bottom up is easier to start than top down.

If a down was designed by and for Autists, what would it be like? Would it be car free? How would lighting be done? Would the colours be muted tones, to avoid sensory overload? How quiet would it be? What about the houses. Are there any Autist design aspects you would include in your house? Okay, no...

What would housing for autists look like? What about a city? I'm not talking about supported housing here, but house design that is suited to our neurotype. Are there specific areas of design that could be improved? Muted tones, soft lighting, good sound insulation... I wonder what an Autist city wo...

Electric fences aren't exactly a fringe idea, though. I don't know how much power it would take.

A lot of collectivist cultures like Scandinavia and even Japan don't seem to stigmatize AS as much as China. Japan has Hikkikomori culture and while Hikkikomoris are somewhat outcasts, they also seem to be somewhat accepted as being part of their culture these days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hi...

Forget the gold, think of the nickel. By my calculations, the Lunar regolith may contain $300 trillion worth of nickel at current prices. Sure, we wouldn't even all be millionaires, but think of the batteries we could build...
