Nice post, thanks!

I linked to a couple of mine; it's good we're all thinking about these things...

The only point I disagree with is the 1+1=3, even if I'm a fan of the Polymath concept.
It hasn't been proven that this is possible so far, even in cases like Leonardo or Tesla. They were brilliant but still biased, or more appropriately, they still specialized to an extent.
In any field there are important intricacies, so when concentrating on two or more at once it's more likely that one will skip over those.
But at the pace we are moving, maybe this kind of synergy will be possible in the future.
