A few folks have asked about a link between my PyCon talk and Shanley’s writing, specifically her essay 10x Engineer, which you can find in her essay collection, Your Startup Is Broken.

Shanley’s writing (and the work she publishes in Model View Culture) has influenced and inspired my thinking about the tech industry in many ways. Shanley’s writings on tech and feminism have informed and inspired me, and have definitely helped shape my thinking. I’m sorry I didn’t directly address this source of inspiration in my talk. I’ll try to be better about making these influences clear in the future.
