Tyler Cowen is an economist familiar with Aspergers. Cowen has assessed online-education e.g., TECH./vocational certification. Online education might provide good leads towards online work projects e.g., Elance, Mechanical Turk, or lesser-known platforms as a part of an online education track. Anybo...

I periodically assess the latest one to two pages of discussion forums, and often find that threads containing about two-dozen replies are an optimal number of replies to be read in full. One exception is the ‘Random Discussion Forum’ - that is threads containing around three to even four-dozen repl...

I don't have much faith in it myself, though I don't doubt it's possible to learn some things in that way, and I'm sure I have done. But a lot of the time, being around people who know more than I do about a subject just makes me feel isolated and irritated. For better results they'd need to explai...
