A technologist uncovers and discovers patterns and systems, and learns those in order to create a disruption or a redirection. An artist understands but takes the more macro level approach, like question why these systems at all. Both are inherently creative, both can be at odds or symbiotic. I agree that generalization is to be resisted, but being aware of the nuances is productive as well. i am in love with technologists but i cannot be one. Therefore i look for them to collaborate with.
The technologists i know need to have my "as the crow files" point of view too. Its a party really.
