Getting Angry and Getting Things Done with Ashe Dryden on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 18

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.

  1. Beyond just thought provoking, this was an action provoking interview. Thank you David for hosting and thank you Ashe for sharing!

  2. There’s an amazing Andrew Harvey quote that says Anger shows us what we care about, but love gives us the tools to make change. This article and podcast reminded me of that 🙂

  3. Such a great interview, and Ashe is so inspiring 🙂 I love that she is taking action and not just letting the things that bother her sit and stew.

  4. I love that when she gets angry she takes ACTION and does something about it! Whether people get positive or negative opinions on it, I believe we need more people like this that take action on their beliefs! Great episode M. David!
