Irony, thy name is ADD

So I'm poking about on the web this morning and come across a story: Top 10 Advantages of ADD in a High Tech Career. (The article is mildly interesting, but I disagree with it at a number of points and it's not the point of this post.)

Suddenly I hear Andrei, who's sitting next to me, burst out in hysterical laughter.

I look over and realize what he had seen. He'd looked over at me, an article about the advantages of ADD on my screen, with me totally zoned out and staring out the window.

Maybe you had to be there.

Yikes! That 10-list is me! It just described my childhood issues perfectly. I wonder how much less hellish school would've been if this stuff had been known then?

I find having a mild smattering of the predisposition to distraction and a predilection to transposing letters makes coding and handling onslaughts of information easier. I agree with the article.
