developers arguing in volunteer, open source projects.

in corporate environments, some developers ask out of curiosity, not as a debate.

"dog food" folk talk is probably why open source tools get low adoption.

"eating your own dog food" is folk advice, and you end up with a product that can be navigated by engineers but noone else.

Come on, people. Profit motive is who they are. And nothing else.

Calm technology. We need technological help to grow tempeh in places where the climate is not suitable for its growth. The idea of our fermenter is to mimic the Indonesian climate to produce plant-based protein food using local beans, to cooperate with nature and help it to help us. But the technology for our device doesn't need to be intrusive, connected to the internet, track our habits or consume more energy than it actually needs. It just needs to produce heat according to what the growth of the mycelium requires. Only a few components are needed. A few components that we can understand, repair and improve if necessary. A few components that reconcile open-source technology with citizens and our food production. We like to call it calm technology.
