While this has been true and will likely continue to be so, it's also
cause for concern. To be a specialist in anything implies we are at
best generalists in most everything else. If we don't learn to value
and appreciate specialist knowledge that we don't have, we will
continue to be at the mercy of those who can best pretend to expertise.
“The only people who value your specialist knowledge are the ones who already have it.”
