There’s an app for that.

Now this is something I can get excited about!

Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center is going to open up the archives and likely do some aggregate data crunching to make a simplified autism blueprint. The goal seems to be (the article is not very specific) to create a decision system to help parents through the diagnosis of their own child.

I’m a little concerned about the size of $2.2 million grant. Seems like there is going to be some management bloat in the app development, which I can say from my experience in software development, is never a good thing. Too many resources and not enough constraints led to lack of focus and general laxness.

I’ll be keeping an eye on this project!
