Submission + - Tyler Cowen on Autism creating a Digital Society (wrongplanet.net)

brokencomputer writes: I recently had the opportunity to sit down for an interview with economist Tyler Cowen, author of Create Your Own Economy: The Path to Prosperity in a Disordered World, an economics book that argues that the Internet is making our society more "autistic" and autistic individuals have a leg up in this new digital economy.
