Why the puzzle piece as a symbol of autism doesn’t make sense

Yesterday was autism awareness day, and that means that the discussion of the “puzzle piece” comes up. The puzzle piece is a popular symbol for autism – except it’s not very liked by people who actually have autism. The puzzle piece was first used as a symbol for autism near 50 years ago.

I should mention that I moved my website(s) away from them as early as November 2020, before their most recent price hike went into effect.

Announcing “From App To Zip”

After a lot of deliberating, the time is finally there to announce my latest project. Say hello to From App To Zip, everyone! And while we’re at it, we’re partially retiring Joomla & More. It’s still really early days and the website looks really rudimentary and empty, but that’ll change gradually over time. If you …
