I added a couple insightful links on stimming since it isn't a very well-known trait of AS/autism. One of them is a blog post; another is a video.

I decided to add another category to the link list called "AS blog entries" since you can often find really insightful blog posts by people on the spectrum.
I've updated the first post with some more links and added Spectrumville. Feel free to keep this updated.
I used to have a fairly large list of links to great ASD-related pages. I'll have to find some of the pages again and post them here. Just give me some time. :)
Ah yes, I was browsing that site a while back. That's a nice setup you got there, have you had much success with it?

Well, the site has been live for a little under a month, and I've had a little over 2000 unique visitors come to it, so I'm pretty happy about that :) The ultimate test of success is of course if people can use the content of the guide to improve their social skills and help build better relationships. I wrote the guide to share the knowledge that's helped me greatly in my own relationships, but the ultimate test is whether or not that advice can help others as well. So far reactions have been fairly positive, but I haven't had anyone say "This helped me really turn my social life around!" However, the site has not even been live for a month yet, so that will take time.

If any of you see any parts of the site that you like/dislike/have ideas about/etc, feel free to contact me either on the forum or through the site. Again, my goal is to help people improve their social skills and have better relationships, so if you have ideas for how I can do that better, I'd love to hear them.

The best you can do here is start a thread about it in the Love, Relationship and Dating section and see what other forum members can contribute.
Aspergers often have weird hobbies and being stubborn with your hobbies is sometimes HELPFUL... It is persons like us that are sure what exacty they want from life... Famous Aspies:

Woldgang Amadeus Mozard,
Albert Einstein,
Nikolas Tesla
Leonard Kahn, the REAL inventor of AM Stereo broadcasting before the Motorola corporation even started


Warm greetings from Canada !
