There’s an event at where I live hosted by students called the Waterloo Learning Night where students present about whatever they’re interested in. At a recent night, I made a 10-minute presentation on the idea and the product of Soylent to about 30 attendees. Note that the presentation is quite cynical, since Soylent is something I’m quite enthusiastic about, so naturally I have to approach it with the utmost cynicism.
Before the presentation, I gave out free samples of Soylent. Despite being mixed and refrigerated, 75% of people said the taste and texture of Soylent made it so that they would never consume it again. 25% of people thought Soylent was incredibly cool and would be buying some once the price dropped a bit more.
A qualm that I was unprepared to respond to was that most women in attendance felt it was too much food and they didn’t know if reducing the amount of Soylent would affect them adversely or not. I should have researched this before presenting.
Feedback on this presentation and facts that I missed out on would be appreciated.
