Specialisterne i NY Times

Jeg bliver så glad, når jeg læser om Specialisterne (firmaet med "it-autister"). F.eks. er der en fin artikel her, hvor Thorkild Sonne, som startede firmaet og selv har en søn med autisme så smukt sætter ord på, hvad man ønsker som mor og far:

"Sonne and his wife thought about what would be best for their son. “What will make Lars a happy man when we are not there anymore?” they asked themselves. “We thought,” Sonne said, “If others could appreciate his skills and respect his special personality in a meaningful and productive job, then we could go to the grave with a good conscience.”"

Han forklarer også virkelig fint, at det handler om opfattelse og perspektiv. Eller rettere 'mælkebøtte-filosofi':

"Depending on your point of view, a dandelion is either a valuable herb — a source of iron and vitamin A, with many medicinal qualities — or a weed that invades your garden. “A weed is a beautiful plant in an unwanted place,” he says. “An herb is the same plant where it is wanted. Who decides if something is a weed or an herb? Society does.”

Så frem med urterne, siger jeg bare! For der er masser af krudt og kvalitet i dem!
