with 'asperger’s syndrome' tag

glenn fleishmann wrote up his impression of a sxsw with bram cohen and then was called out by some of his readers for commenting on behavior of bram’s that may be attributable to asperger’s syndrome.

i wasn’t at the session (or at sxsw at all), but it seems to me that the person glenn really missed complaining about was the person interviewing bram. didn’t she talk to bram before the session to find out what he did and did not want to talk about? couldn’t she find a way to move from an audience question to a related topic that bram was interested in talking about?

and if you want some evidence that bram can talk well on the aspects of bittorrent that interest him, check out the talk he gave at stanford.
