Help Us Mind the Big Fungus

As you'll see in this cool nature video, leafcutter ants can't digest leaves. So what are millions of them doing carrying leaf bits to their nests? In the nests, a specialized subset of those ants mulches the leaves with their saliva, then adds that mixture to a fungus that they tend symbiotically.

They're also known as "farmer" ants. They all eat the fungus and the nectar it generates.

What if, metaphorically, we were helping one another weave a shared context that was nutritious for civilization? A context that included Wikipedia, but went way beyond it?

That's what we're doing here. Weaving the World (a video podcast) is feeding The Big Fungus.

We'd love it if you jumped in. There's a chance we can improve education, journalism, politics, science, publishing and more.
