Forgot to mention in my "welcome" that I read your blog concerning the Wired article.
Very good job--well written.
My best,

Hi Rey
Let me extend to you my personal welcome (although belated) to our AutismOne Social Network. AutismOne is now the “one-stop-shopping center” for information about autism. We have the annual conference in Chicago, AutismOne radio, the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy and now the AutismOne Social Network (and more to come).
I notice that you’ve not made any entries into your profile. Remember, this is a social network. Part of the function of a social network is to meet and interact with others who have common interests. Of course autism is a common interest. But there is more than that. Individuals like to know about a person before becoming a “friend.” That’s where the profile comes in. So whenever you can find the time, please fill in some of the entries of your profile. To do that just click on “My User Menu” next to the Welcome area on the right. From the resulting menu click on “Edit My Profile” and you will be in business.
Helping you interact with others is one of the many things we can do for you. Now here’s something you can do for us. Log in on a regular basis and read the blogs and articles then write a blog yourself. It can be on any subject of interest to you, preferably with some relevance to autism but not necessarily. It can be short or long, whatever it takes for you to express your thoughts. If you have a question then ask it in a blog--people read then they respond. If you see something with which you agree or disagree then please add a comment with your thoughts. This is an open community designed to help and support. We like to hear all sides.
I am looking forward to reading your opinions in future blogs and/or articles.
With my best regards
Will Price, CFO

Shame on Amy Wallace and her editors both for their public rellatio (= PR fellatio) of the pharmaceutical industry, masquerading unconvincingly as journalism (Wired Magazine, issue 17.11, “Epidemic of Fear”).

A Little About Me: 

I'm a writer, advertising creative director, and Arizona-born desert rat, now residing in sunny southern California near both the desert and the ocean that I love.

My initial work in advertising was on a freelance basis, first as a graphic designer, then as an art director, for several large New York pharmaceutical agencies. The experience was a significant awakening for me that the industry into whose hands we and our bodies are thrust at a very young age is very often unworthy of the responsibility. For it is not the mission of the pharmaceutical industry, practically speaking, to get effective, safe drugs to the right people. Rather, the de facto goal of the industry and its advertising is to get more drugs at higher cost into as many bodies as possible, often regardless of the potential long-term ill effects of that effort.

Since fleeing both pharmaceutical advertising and the frigid winters of the Northeast in 2000, I've served as a print, Web, and motion-graphics creative director, primarily for the entertainment industry. I've also devoted more and more of my time to writing. My first screenplay, "A Good Mother", earned me a spot on the prestigious Hollywood Black List, as well as representation at 3 Arts Entertainment and UTA, both top-tier Hollywood agencies.

I look forward to continuing to create stories and characters that are worthy of the public's attention, and as well to devoting more of my time and talents to those organizations, such as AutismOne, which seek to marginalize those who defend the status quo against the truth.

Why I am a Part of the AutismOne Community: 

The AutismOne community fights for a truth that I believe in: That Big Pharma does not and never will hold the key to health and happiness for me and my family.
