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.

A guide to employing autistic employees

Disclaimer: I am well aware that people with autism might have different needs, skills sets and so on. If you want to “educate” me on this, then by all means… don’t. I can’t possibly cover all possible angles and shades of blue in this blog post, and neither should you expect me to. Let this …

Steven 4.0

Hello everyone, I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to Steven 4.0. If you have no idea that there were three previous versions of me, that’s all right. The number is a rough estimate of how many “big periods” I went through in my life. To roughly summarize things, these are the release …

Wanted: No more call center position offers (M/F)

People often say that beggars can’t be choosers. Projected on my current job situation, in which I’ve been out of a job for a few months, I suppose that means I should be considering every possible job offer. It’s fair enough to claim that any job is better than no job. However, there are some …
