Venture capitalist and author of the forthcoming book, The Fuzzy and the Techie (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, April 2017). The faux opposition in Silicon Valley that pits the Liberal Arts against STEM undermines the fact that the best companies, products, and societies are built by fuzzies and techies working together. Software may be eating the world, but the bigger questions today are how do we humanize our technology, bring context back to code.
