The main character is autistic and strong, he knows himself, and pursues odd hobbies with pride, aware and proud of his obsessiveness.The book is edgy, even tense and dark. Not all of it, and it has no sexual content.

The ages of 12-22 are hard for everyone, especially someone on the spectrum. This story gives a sense of what is at stake at that age -what people in that age can see as great battles- and through this fictional character a troubled autistic youth can see that others are grappling with similar challenges and questions.Autistic Crow Computer posits a neglected vantage point in public policy discussions: what if the modern industrial and information-driven world is the ideal environment for autistics to succeed and lead self sufficient lives?

What if modernity -with its encapsulation of technology, literacy and numeracy as the bubble humans now live in- is the ideal autistics can be empowered and masters of their own destiny?Excerpts from Autistic Crow Computer:...Walking home he noticed the sun going down beyond the interstate, and the city lights beginning to show their brightness. A ship was coming into port loaded with shipping containers stacked as high as a small skyscraper. The hub for most internet traffic through the region went through one of the skyscrapers in view.

This was all porn for AK, Throughput-Porn. AK got off on the sight of mass movement of objects and information. This reverence for Big Industrial Movement was once common, in the early part of the 20th century, when New York City was an unapologetic ruler over the rest of the country, and its residents didnt mince any words about their superiority....That night he dreamt of a high desert plain with power lines going on from one horizon to the other, seemingly endless from a local eye.

The lines emitted a buzz, then somehow his ears changed internal configuration and he could decode the buzz. If he slowed down the buzz, conversations emerged. He made out some words, some statements. Then crows landed on the lines. The crows then lifted off and took the buzzing sound still emitting from their beaks to places far away. AK woke, saw it was one in the morning, went to the bathroom to pee, and went back to sleep.

He had another dream, there was this old barn with a large opening on the second level. Two crows flew in. They had a nest in the ceiling rafters, and a few tiny black birds were starting to nag their parents for nourishment. The crows perched on the edge of the nest and emitted a buzz. The little birds were seemingly appeased.The author has experience that informs this story. Beyond his son being a diagnosed autistic, the main driver for his writing the book is his own autism. Regarding authority in the technical domains of the book, Lance has a Bachelor of Science, years of experience writing programs for Unix and Linux machines, along with several years experience as test engineer and product design of specialized computers.
