Discussion on: A generalist is born when a specialist becomes bored

Daniel great read. In other times, the generalist would be called a jack of all trades. This described my job history prior to taking the tech plunge. Being a generalist is not for everyone but some do thrive in that kind of environment. I am an "older" beginner, who having lots of life experience has found that specialism does not necessarily work for me. I enjoy being the generalist and all that it has to offer. If I find a topic that is great interest, then i will specialize in it until it no longer holds my interest. Is it okay if I pass this article along to some of my non-tech friends?
