The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

The Intelligent Singaporean, blog aggregator.

Long, it seems, has The Intelligent Singaporean been a fixture in the Singaporean blogosphere - but no more. Today, their Last Message was posted.

For those who may not know, The Intelligent Singaporean, was brought into being to aggregate all interesting comment in the Singaporean "socio-political blogosphere", to allow Singaporeans, and interested parties overseas, to easily find significant articles of the day, about all things Singaporean.

This has been an important role, for many Singaporeans, for it has made it much easier to access alternative and insightful opinions about all "socio-political" matters affecting Singaporeans today.

The reasons behind the closure of The Intelligent Singaporean (found at Wordpress), are not clearly stated - they are just referred to as "events" that lead the founder of the blog to have to close it down.

I am grateful that The Intelligent Singaporean took notice of my writing on a number of occasions and referenced it.

It is a pity that this role of gathering the ideas and insights of the day, in one convenient place, will no longer be performed by The Intelligent Singaporean. It was a popular and successful blog aggregator/commenter appreciated by many and was listed as one of Technorati's higher ranking blogs.

I wish the founder(s?) of the blog well in whatever future role they play in the blogosphere, if any.

(If you would like to read of Ainan Celeste Cawley, a scientific child prodigy, aged seven years and eight months, or his gifted brothers, Fintan, four years and one month, or Tiarnan, eighteen months, please go to: I also write of gifted education, IQ, intelligence, genetics, left-handedness, College, University, Chemistry, Science, child prodigy, child genius, baby genius, adult genius, savant, the creatively gifted, gifted adults and gifted children in general. Thanks.)

That is a sign that what they were doing is something that people wanted (at least, most people, anyway). Mysterious "events" led to their closure.

Thanks for your well wishes.
