Turing Award=Nobel Prize
"Adi Shamer, a cryptographer at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and a winner of the 2002 A.M.Turing, computings equivalent of a Nobel Prize, used a technique called power analysis to uncover the password of a first generation RFID tag. "
The quote was from Consumer Reports Magazine, June 2006 Issue, Page 38
All I can simply say is Gee ,Autism look what you have been missing?
Here it is 2006 and Autism the older untouched versions of it have been figured out and time tested and rendered in double-blind experiences from autistic from all over the globe, with repeatable results to boot, and Autism societies and professionals are simply to ignorant or stubborn to admit we fill in the blanks and answer the questions they have been searching for. Success is success and ignored success our ignored success is simply proof positive that Modern Autism could really care less about autism or your Autism family member. If they really gave a darn they would have continued to embrace us years ago when they first learned of our anthropology and even they thought we were on to something. While we build on Temple Grandin's work and take mankind's mind into new uncharted areas and explain autism along the way the so called professionals of autism are not at all thrilled with our results. Admitting to us in any form will deflate autism as we know it today. Many people, powerful people in autism have given their lives for the sake of Autism and it is now proving impossible to be heard as their skewed versions of autism and, our skewed versions (as they see it) of Autism don't match.
Autism has many more books and chapters to add to mankind's knowledge base upon our discovery. Can you just imagine 10-20 more books building on Temple's Thinking in Pictures! More over modern Autism doesn't want to know of it, as our Autistic authors are routinely rejected from Autism Publishers. Despite going kilometers in explaining Savants and the nuts and bolts of Autism, the Autism Powers judging from their actions would prefer to keep Autism an' Oh Help me Condition' that more often than not yields one to life in a group home. What we have done has never been in a text book before and Thinking in Pictures, was only the very tip of our deep thought process!
While recent posts in this blog have been relating Alan Turing's life to Autism and explaining how it relates to autism thoughts and traditional thoughts, we learn by the quote above the A.M. Turing Award is equal to the Nobel Prize in Computers. That is a very well fitting, named award for our autistic hero, Alan Turing. Weather it is the Movie Character Rain Man, or Alan Turing or many other Savant type people from all over the world Autism has only noticed the high points to a savant and exploited them (hopefully not on purpose) to create an Autism Empire that today can't be touched. It employs many people and fuels the EGOS of many professionals that hide themselves in peer review hugs. The good old boy network seems to be more worried of being (unchallenged) 'expert' to their own standards rather than being true people of science and investigating all of autism, even the parts they don't like.

PS, If anyone in Autism wishes to be big enough to take one side of an Olive Branch, we are willing to let you exploit our findings, spin them as you wish, as that is a win, win -- we get our autism knowledge to the people that need it and you might to get to keep control of your precious empire. Once the right seeds are planted Autism will grow on its own, in the right direction. Perhaps that is a really scary thought to some?
