This is biology.

Gradients of technological democracy (in order of least to best):

- one app, one service (WhatsApp).
- open api (multiple apps, some of which open source), one service (some information providers).
- idem, but service is self-hostable (closed source, such as MS Echange)
- idem, but service is open source (Nextcloud Talk, Matrix)
- standardized protocol (e-mail, irc, xmpp, activitypub)

I have a question :
At work, we want to manage a set of related modules and programs in a . Which solution for dependency management would you recommend ?
We're gonna try with pipenv (my python colleague tried poetry but wasn't convinced)
We initially ditched Conda (because "not standard"), but I wonder if we shouldn't change our minds.

@glyph damnit !
It seems I have contaminations in my culture : see the greenish mold at the bottom of my pot.
It's too bad, be cause elsewhere the mycelium seems good !

Probable causes :
temperature too low for the pleurotus to colonize before other fungi.
Maybe also too few seeding mushroom fragments and/or not enough homogeneous repartition in the pot.
Maybe also too much humidity.
