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


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.

Labeling doesn’t work for #Generalists


Generalists love to learn, all the time. Sometimes a topic, a subject might catch their curious eye and their attention is drawn to it for a month, a quarter, a year. After a while the attraction becomes much less and they start to look for new topics. Adaptation has a powerful impact on Generalists.

In the background they still keep on fuelling their curiosity and love for learning, so they never focus on just one topic only.
