An outpost for curious divergent thinkers who appreciate diversity, broad thinking, widely inspired ideas, and addressing issues globally.

FOUNDER'S NOTE

**This forum will sunset in late September 2018** 

By their very nature generalists tend not to congregate. Our interests are so many and so varied that it's almost counter-intuitive to try to gather us around a common theme. But it is indeed possible.

This community's goal is simply to define what it is to be a creative generalist and build a directory of sorts for those who specialize in everything.

Generalists, you're not alone. And you really should meet each other. Welcome.

All join up on Facebook?

I was sad to receive the news that this site would be sunset. But I can't say I'm surprised. My own online activity hasn't veered towards server-based communities in many years.I thought I'd log back on (had to reset my long-forgotten password) and I like what I see in the articles and general discussion. Facebook having been my medium of choice for a while now (although I'm in the process of taking some much-needed distance in this era of non-stop politics and generalized soul-sucking gloom),…See More
