I started publishing Hack the Process as a podcast last year to gather and share insights from people who’ve managed to get over the hurdle of going from an idea to putting something real out into the world. One of the things I learned along the way was how helpful it can be to curate regular lists of inspiring publications and services. And since I’ve been following our growing community of Process Hackers, here are some of their recent updates you might appreciate. Check out what they’re working on, and please be sure to let them know what you think by offering your feedback.

When Ashe Dryden gets angry, she does something about it. She writes, she speaks, she tweets, she hosts conferences such as AlterConf, and she organizes fundraising programs. And as an engineer who knows what it’s like to be a member of a marginalized group, the issue at the heart of Ashe’s anger is diversity awareness in the tech and gaming industries. Ashe’s outspoken activism has gotten her a lot of attention, both positive and negative, but she manages to find balance in her own life by maintaining friends and hobbies outside of the tech world, and paying attention to her own needs while fighting for the needs of others. Hear how Ashe turned herself into an expert and an internet celebrity, how she structures her time, and how she applied new learnings along with the skills she already had when she got started.
