Venus: Possible evidence of life in the clouds?

OK, the potential for bacterial life in Venus’s clouds is very exciting, to say the least. But Venus would be an outstanding point for colonization as well. Its atmosphere is made up of mostly CO2 allowing for oxygen mining. The carbon would come in handy as carbon fiber. Up 100km above the surface, conditions are very nice actually with pressures and temperatures comparable to Earth and good radiation protection. Venus is also easier to reach than Mars and inflatables would float very nicely in its thick atmosphere. Gravity is about similar to Earth’s gravity so humans could live there with air for breathing only. No heavy protection required. And lots of aromatics to mine in the upper clouds. We don’t need the surface, the atmosphere is a treasure trove.
