WADR to Lisa's good intentions, I strongly advise you all not to reveal
your personal medical conditions on this publicly and permanently
accessible list.

Furthermore, revealing anyone *else's* medical conditions might be
construed as a violation of HIPAA. I am not an expert in HIPAA, and any
input from those who are would be welcome.

Yours for privacy and regulatory compliance,

Dan Goldstein

> Is it a career that people with ADD are drawn to?
> So, this week's poll question is:
> Does ADD have an effect on your ability to work as a technical writer:
> It has a positive effect - think multitask!
> It has a negative effect - too many distractions I... oh,
> look at that pretty shiny object!
> ADD?! Everyone has that!
> I do not have ADD
> Other/None of the above
> As always, feel free to discuss this poll on the email list.
> However, make sure you keep it focused on technical communication.
