So, my current thinking, based on my observations and what you've said, is that channels and playlists are much the same thing, i.e. collections of videos, except that a channel might have a lot more videos and they'd generally be by the same author. Yes, both channels and playlists are collections...

Will any similar "events" happen later this year? Yes. Autscape, the autistics' conference, will take place via an online video conference from 23 July until 27 July. The program is yet to be published, but it should be similar to last year's program, which can be seen here: http://www.au...

I didn't know there were any autism YouTube channels (don't even quite know what a channel is - some kind of glorified playlist I guess). There are dozens, or maybe hundreds, of YouTube channels that are solely dedicated to autism. A YouTube channel is where a person uploads their videos to - each ...

Speaking of Jane Austen, there is a book...

Do you ever watch autistic YouTube channels? If so, which ones are your favourites? What do you like about them? I have a new favourite channel - Mom on the Spectrum. I like her because she seems extremely "normal" and therefore breaks many negative stereotypes about autistics. Here is on...

growing up is teen years only??? (too literal translation going on :mrgreen: grow up in dutch is related to childhood) but then i don't see how you relate that to the op poll ?? I suppose "growing up" can describe any period in one's life. Most people experience it during their childhood ...

Most likely no, but I wish goodwill to all who "attend."

Thank you.
Attending an online event is different from attending an event in a venue, so it makes sense to add quote marks.

It was a nice event, but very long. I watched it on and off throughout the day.
