    Too little information to be conclusive. I also think that every time a new diagnosis gains credibility, it gains traction and is applied willy nilly. Each decade seems to bring a new favorite diagnosis, so only time will tell if the "rising numbers" are legitimate.

    Eindhoven the "Dutch silicon valley"? Give me a break. It's uncomparable. :P

    As for this article/theory, and many other articles/theories alike: Basicly it's 99% bullshit. These articles serve almost no public purpose whatsoever.

    At most, it might bring awareness to people that do have a brain willing to investigate this further to see where the real issue comes from, finding credible facts and evidence. But the other 99% of the people that read this can't do much at all with this information. It is inconclusive, and pretty useless. :P

    The idea has come up over and over again. That Autism and Asperger's are hereditary, I am willing to accept. I can even entertain the idea that nerdiness and Asperger's are related. But where is the evidence?

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Quite easily the most horrificly stupid article that I've ever read in my life; nothing more than poor theorizing based on a random correlation.

    Whats it even matter where autism/aspergers come from? People with autism/aspergers are not a bane or threat on society.

    if this article tells us anything, it's that asperger's syndrome in the Information Age will actually be a beneficial cognitive predisposition. this is something I've believed for a long time anyway

    Well it's a possibility but there are many, always interesting to think of new possibilities...
    I agree a little with Elfboy too but theres many variants.
    I think it's more important to focus on how society views and treats people on the autistic spectrum though,
    education is key but in a world where asd is ahead of it's time it is hard for people to understand.
    I include myself in "people".
