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

FOUNDER'S NOTE

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.

Raising all boats

The nature of being a Creative Generalist is a (pursued interest) in a wide variety of topics, and skills, which by the way is the definition of talent. Talent can be defined as a (diligently pursued interest). How can we move the human consciousness to a different plane, or different level of understanding. Obviously education is one central key, but what kind of education? As a beginning college student who's parents did not attend college, there were no mentors, for me. The(process) of…See More
