Great article !
A cool citation :
Imagine a flashy spaceship lands in your backyard. The door opens and you are invited to investigate everything to see what you can learn. The technology is clearly millions of years beyond what we can make.
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 #python question :
At work, we want to manage a set of related modules and programs in a #monorepo. Which solution for dependency management would you recommend ?
We're gonna try with pipenv (my python colleague tried poetry but wasn't convinced)

@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 :

Maybe also too few seeding mushroom fragments and/or not enough homogeneous repartition in the pot.
Maybe also too much humidity.
