Nice job, Cassie. All things Stamets in one location. He is one of my heroes.

Paul (Wheaton) has stated on the podcast and daily-ish emails that he's mad at Paul (Stamets). I don't recall him ever saying why?
So curious. I wonder if it has something to do with cardboard. I am fascinated when people who are working in good faith and have so much in common find things to disagree about- it can be very instructive.
I don't wish to pick at wounds so mods please delete if this is inappropriate.
I am going to try to explain why. Someone else who knows better has all my permission to give more details or correct.
Paul Stamets and Paul Wheaton were going to work together on a big project. Paul Wheaton did a whole bunch of work and investment on things they had agreed on. After awhile, Paul Stamets had one of his assistants tell Paul Wheaton that they were not going to be able to make it work. PW did a whole bunch of work and investment on what ended up as nothing, and PS didn't work it out with him and didn't even tell him directly, which obviously leave a bad taste in PW's mouth. He still hasn't worked it out with him, as far as I know. Correct me if I have something wrong.
Sorry. I just found out that PW himself explained in another thread, today I think. It was about one of the forums that was going to be set up, but basically, what I said was true as far as I know.

He did? Because I was wondering also, after hearing a cryptic reference in an old podcast.
But I just did a forum search on "Stamets" and there isn't a post in the first page of results (dating back to 10/1) by Paul Wheaton. So if he has explained, it wasn't in a public place in the last three and a half months.
Don't apologize. Like I say I was wondering, and your explanation is the best one available, apparently.
