Creative “Generalist”

¡Hola pueblo,

now i’m back again with another review. this time is about,

at first, the word “generalist” seem unfamiliar to me and i couldn’t get what it means until i figured that out at the wikipedia. so, before you move your finger to find it out too, i’ll help you with this hint.

generalist is about a person with a wide array of knowledge, the opposite of which is a specialist. 

by knowing what “generalist” means, then i could understand where this blog was about to take me into beside my first thought that this site would be just the same like the previous blog i reviewed. before i looked at the About section of this website, I realized the word “generalist” here was telling me that a creative person is not a specialist, but it has to have a broad way of thinking, knowledge, and also have various perspectives as an addition in order to be able to see world through its unique point of view. then in that case, I began to consider that this website could provide many information and prescription about and to be creative generalist.

Creative Generalist

Creative Generalist began as a personal blog of Steve Hardy which was founded in 2002. this inspiring website is made as an outpost for curious divergent thinkers who appreciate new ideas from a wide mix of sources. the content is completely random, updated regularly, and its inspiration drawn from – and relevant to – the larger creative world. besides being a hub for generalist ideas, news, and perspectives, one of their main goals is to introduce broad thinkers with one another. thus, is now a community resource and forum.


talking about its content, has three cores. The first is called Zeitgeist and Kite Flights which presented in Inspiration(Synthesize & Summarize) section, this page functioned as a daily ephemeral collection of news, opinion, and inspirations from around the World Wide Web, curated by the @generalists list tweets.



Second is about Society of Creative Generalist in People(Mix & Match) section which used as an outpost for curious divergent thinkers who appreciate diversity, broad thinking, widely inspired ideas, and addressing issues globally. Finally, The Third is The Eclectic Curiosity Interviews that shown at Blog(Link & Leap) section, this last and special part is build for presenting a wide-ranging Q&A series with some incredibly bright people with exciting stories to tell and wisdom to share.

Overall, this website does provide various information and concerns that unexpectedly enlighten me to open my mind and reshape my thinking method about my interests, which mostly come from some quotes presented within some sections. this remind me about design thinking method and it seems like this website could provide generalists to cook up their concerns related to their interests. some of good quotes that i spoke are :

“Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.” — Leonardo Da Vinci

“To appreciate nonsense requires a serious interest in life.” — Gelett Burgess

Personally, I hope you all visit this and hopefully you could be inspired just by reading some news and articles and watching  unique perspectives through some posted interviews.

Gracias por leer.
