I’ve been thinking about, what I like to call the everybody do it all generation. That of course includes myself. I grew up in an age where we are constantly told, “you can be anything, anything you put your mind to” and of course we believe it! Beyond believing it we now have the tools to do it all, to be all we think we can be: camera, iphone, ipad, blog, google, wikipedia, twitter, pr machine, China… But? That creates much confusion, much noise. I’m wondering if it’s not better to perfect one craft, to put one’s head down and focus on one thing and…MASTER it? Or are we really in the age of EVERYBODY CAN DO IT ALL? What do you think?
