Rands in Repose published an exposé of that little known or understood syndrome known as NADD that I found via Steve.
As a content-fire-hose drinker myself, I have to say that I see a lot of me in this post. I should probably send it over to Sandi so that she can better understand me. The thing I’d have to correct is that the N in NADD necessarily implies computers and technology. Surely, the groundbreaking work that is Revenge of the Nerds demonstrated that nerds come in all stripes and flavors. In other words, there are physics nerds, history nerds, biology nerds, fashion nerds, etc. Heck, some cross nerdly boundaries: I myself am a computer nerd, a history nerd, and an economics nerd (among other nerdly pursuits).
