I'm pretty attracted to the U-shaped hybrid idea, myself. I love bringing seemingly disparate ideas together. BUT... I'm also a sucker for practicality. And until I develop enough of both sides of the "U," I find it hard to see how to turn that relationship into something practical.

Because the thing is, it's not just "bravery" that's needed, it's time. The T-shaped hybrid takes relatively less time to develop because you're taking advantage of adjacent skills you're already proficient at.
