It occurred to me that we live in a world of specialists! Everyone in their own little knowledge niche busily specializing in something special. What happened to the polymaths, the people who knew something about a range of subjects and processes; who were capable of all work, yet masters of none? These are the people who are really interesting to talk to (or play Trivial Pursuit with) because they can hold forth on so many subjects, yet are not such snobs as to think they have the last word on everything. They know what they do not know, and I say we need more people like that and less talking heads who think they do know it all. It would make for a far richer intellectual landscape than we know inhabit and I suspect, a much more interesting one.
