Walter Isaacson is known for his biographies of such legends as Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs. During his research for Steve Jobs, he yearned to explore the concept of one person often getting credit for generations of innovation.
The Innovators explores contributions from major movements starting in 1843 and continuing up to 2011. He states one massive finding was that
"the truest creativity of the digital age came from those who were able to connect the arts and sciences."
Although most of us lean one way or the other as being either more creative or more logical, I think that we can develop the topics that aren't naturally interesting to us. If anything, we can better understand our shortcomings in these areas and involve people in our lives or projects whose strengths will compliment our weaknesses.
Keep in mind, too, Isaacson doesn't say the "individuals" who were able to connect the arts and sciences. The innovations that led to the personal computer and the internet were achieved by leagues of people over the span of a century-and-a-half!
Can you think of people in your life who fill in the gaps?
