Chris Pirillo Discusses ADD with Pete on His Podcast Before Northern Voice 1

Chris Pirillo was here in Vancouver with Ponzi recently to speak at the Northern Voice blogging conference. He also did the Chris Pirillo show at the Take 5 Coffee shop downtown the night before Moose Camp. Chris talks with Vancouver blogger Will Pate, Scott Beale from Laughing Squid and Identity Woman, and myself.

Chris needs no introduction to those of you involved in the high tech world. For the rest here’s a line from his bio

The geek among geeks: technologist, television host, magazine columnist, blogger, author, and entrepreneur.

He’s the #1 search for Chris on the internet. He runs the Gnomedex conference, the Lockergnome content network, a podcast show, and his own blog and more.

I talk about ADD with Chris who says he has ADD, and I’m not disputing it:) How could you do all those different things if you didn’t have ADD? My piece starts at 1 hour 9 minutes 11 seconds and is about 15 minutes. Here’s the link to Chris’s Podcast.

We talked about ADHD, ADHD Coaching, and some reasons why ADHD is an advantage in a high tech career, i.e., the gift of hyperfocus. We also talk about translating Chris’s visions, the vanilla people, and how clutter affects ADDers.

I also mention the importance of a good diagnosis, the popular 5 minute Harvard Adult ADD Screener test, and different ways of dealing with ADD.

If you listen to the podcast, let me know what you think of it.
