I've been called a "generalist", a term I first saw Ted Nelson describe himself with.

I'm not a huge fan of the term for myself because I do consider myself quite specialized in some of the areas I've chosen to pursue (it's one thing to say I like mathematics, but I have a particular interest in differential geometry) and "generalist" has always seemed to carry the negative "lack of depth" rather than the positive "breadth".
