Submission + - Tyler Cowen on Autism creating a Digital Society (

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. Tyler talks to me about Economcis, the way in which autistic individuals approach concepts differently than non-autistics, and how the autistic mode of thought can be more beneficial in certain web 2.0 situations.
