Continuing the discussion from Log your opinions of 1.4 here:
People have vastly differing opinions on Soylent 1.4. When initial feedback came out it seemed that these differences were simply a reflection of the subjectivity in people’s tastes and preferences. Although subjectivity will always be a factor, I’m now starting to wonder if part of the problem might be inconsistency in preparation, due to the rapid scaling up of Soylent’s manufacturing.
Have we traded one unsavory outcome (massive delays) for another (variability in end result, ranging between revulsion and completely loving it)? Has high demand for Soylent lead to compromises in supply chain choices and manufacturing processes? Some clarification from Rosa Labs on this point would be most appreciated.
