Aspergers, the next stage in human development?

I have a staff member who genuinely believes that Aspergers is the next step in human evolution. The ability to excel in specific disciplines without the need (ability) to for social niceties is the perfect personality for the computer/digital/global is the same as local community! All one really needs are the skills which allow, or propel one to a synthesis with artificial intelligence.
Interesting idea which may not be too far off the mark, if so, then it will be a sad development. The joy of social interaction, the fun with others and the nuances of social dynamic are an essential part of what being human is all about.
It is with this goal our Social Thinking classes oriented.
