THE FUZZY AND THE TECHIE: Why the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, April 2017), explores the vital role of the Liberal Arts in humanizing our technology. As we move to a world driven by big data, and powered by algorithms, the "techies," or those who have studied engineering and computer sciences, are of great importance. But as we prioritize Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), we must also consider the overlooked but valuable role that the Liberal Arts play in our technological world. These "fuzzies," as they are known in the parlance of Stanford University, are of equal, and increasing, importance in helping us apply our new tools with context, consideration, and relevance to the greatest human problems. A new generation of entrepreneurs, those who are both fuzzy-and-techie, is emerging.
In 2018, BEI Editora published the Portuguese version of "The Fuzzy and the Techie: Why the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World," entitled "O Fuzzy e o Techie: Por Que as Ciências Humanas Vão Dominar o Mundo Digital," with forewords from top Brazilian venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
The Fuzzy and the Techie was translated and released in Complex Chinese across Hong Kong and Taiwan in 2018. The title “書呆與阿宅：理工科技力+人文洞察力，為科技產業發掘市場需求，解決全球議題” translates roughly to “science, technology and humanities insights. Why the technology industry must explore to solve global issues.” The book has received widespread press in Asia.
