Lat Ware pauses to straighten his jacket and organize his chaotic mind. For Ware, who has attention deficit disorder, standing in the halls of a gaming conference as people rush by can feel like being in a hurricane of humanity.
He takes a deep breath before he steps up to a passerby to pose the question he has already asked at least 100 times today.

“Um, suuuuuure…” says Natalia Veselova, who has come from Russia to attend the Game Developers Conference in March.
