Could there be a Multipotentialite Career Revolution Brewing?

Renaissance Business Case Study: the Web Designer, Filmmaker, Entrepreneur, Activist

When I first met Brian Gerald, he had half a dozen different websites. There was the site where he wrote about theology, activism and queer rights, the site where he offered his web development services, the lifestyle design blog, the self-promotional website, and a few others I can’t recall.
