I've been asked to create a video for a conference forum in November. The topic is to be "Autistic Culture." I'd like to receive any input you have on the topic, like which areas most need to be addressed. Thanks!

Thats great you got such a request!
Im not good on suggestions in topics though....
except that its quite popular to talk about the whereabouts of NTs

Sorry for offtopic but got to think of You and Videos in combination:
if I remember right ...it was something with autism awareness
and you said you will show one new video per day in a month, but did you?
In your YouTube channel it doesnt look like it but you might brought it on somewhere else?

What do people think of making short video clips of themselves talking about autistic culture and sending them to me so I can weave them into a video? It's either that or do the usual slide-show with music.

As for 30 in 30, I got sick in the middle. I made half. 15! Still, I have over 50 on autism awareness on YouTube.

I would love to help you out Whitetiger. I am not sure if I can, but I might try if you like. I am thinking there may have been a video made of me made this morning---I did a music ministry at a local area church, and I talked about autism in my life. I mentioned the social awkwardness, special intense interests, sensory issues, etc. And I played my dulcimers and harmonica.

I am very much into autism awareness right now. I am delivering my own message in my music ministry about autism in my life. Your assignment sounds challenging and exciting. I will see what I can do.

Thank you. If enough people are up for the challenge, you can send the video clips to my email address (PM me for it) via sendthisfile.com. You will get a wide audience to share your views.

Culture? Where can I experience some of this culture? Have we actually established one? Are we there yet? Wow.

We have a culture. We have our own lingo and ways of approaching things. We have our own version of "aspie cool." We get along better with each other than NT's, for the most part. These are just some of the aspects of "aspie culture."
