First Person: Do I know you?

I suppose that my face-blindness has made me the person I am.

I don’t much like movies or People magazine, not because I’m above caring about movie stars, but because I don’t recognize most of them. I became an addictive reader, an author and an English professor because, in the world of words on paper, I have no disability. —Lee Tobin McClain, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I first stumbled across the concept of face-blindness in 2002, when I blogged about this fascinating website, so I was able to act slightly knowledgeable when Lee told me about this forthcoming article. One pages uses stones to explain how changes of context make a big difference.
