Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects millions of people from diverse backgrounds. For many like myself, the diagnosis comes with an immediate challenge: How do we find our place in the large ADHD community? On this journey internet technologies both help and hinder us.
In this workshop I want to broaden the way we think about technology and ADHD. Often, the conversation is about tech that helps treat ADHD: website blockers, time trackers, todo list managers. But tech can do so much more. For example, while AI targeted ads can make browsing overwhelming, AI carefully employed can supercharge our curiosity, creativity, and drive for connection with others.
In this workshop, I'd love to use techniques of brainstorming and collaborative storytelling to help us imagine a way of living and working on the internet where we feel comfortable and at home with our brains.
