Autism Awareness

April is Autism Awareness month.  In honor of that, I have changed the header image of my blog, and will leave it up for the remainder of the month.  I don’t often post about personal things, but I will make an exception for this.  Autism affects 1 in every 88 children in America today.  I’m sure it affects a large number of people in the Ubuntu and Free Software communities. It affects one of my own two children.

If anybody wants to use this image for their own sites, please feel free.  It is cropped to fit the default WordPress Twenty Ten theme.

    Michael,

    maybe you and your readers already know it, but a couple of years ago I met online, and interviewed, a mother who uses Ubuntu also with her autistic child.

    Hope this helps to increase the awareness of both the opportunities and the limits of Free Software in this field.

    Marco
