Very interesting. I too like knowing about everything. My current dilemma goes the other way, though.

That is, while I've used a lot of languages and techniques in my personal projects, my professional experience has all been in the same direction. And my personal projects often have not touched the frameworks that are big in the professional world.

So, now my work experience makes me look like a specialist. In the mean time, I think of myself as more of a generalist. And though I believe I could easily learn the relevant frameworks in barely any time at all, I do match the keyword searches for the specialist thing and not other things.
