Creative, curious, makes people crazy

I like Creative Generalist because Steve recognizes the connection between creativity and curiosity, a combination that drives people crazy (follow-up posts 1, 2 and 3). It's not easy being a generalist in a world of specialists, but someone has to be able to make connections across domains, or innovations will stay in the lab. The trick is to develop a specialization that benefits from generalist traits and use your curiosity to develop insights others miss.

Other blogs that inspire me: Idea Sandbox, Information Aesthetics, Logic+Emotion,
Presentation Zen.
