I Think This Is The Solution for My N.A.D.D. Too

Rands in Repose gives a history of his N.A.D.D. and some good reasoning for getting a 30 inch flat panel.

Thinking is messy.

You don't want to admit this because you've been carefully orchestrating yourself out of the chaos by constructing your personal version of N.A.D.D. These interactions with your desktop, your content, your thoughts exist because information is messy, too. It's all a big mess and our job as consumers of an infinite amount of information is to find a system of organization which best suits our interests and our attention spans.

The comment I've heard most about this new 30 inch flat panel is, "Who in the world needs it?" You do. Right now. So do I. 60 inches would better, but 30 inches is all we got.

Yes, I can't afford it. Neither can you because we're not working at Pixar or PDI where they've got a present day politically correct justification for all those pixels, but that doesn't mean we don't need it. It just means we haven't successfully convinced the bill payers that more pixels means more productivity. [Rands in Repose]
