It was determined with some reasonable level of confidence in the “order status” thread recently that the people with smaller nonvegan orders who already got their Soylent are mostly beta testers, journalists, and people who work for companies that Soylent might want to do business with in the future (who also happen to be friends with the founders).
From the Order Status thread:
This guy didn’t mention that he’s childhood friends with
two of the co-founders and works for a large company that we may be
interested in establishing a relationship with, so his order was shipped
along with the beta tester orders.
Thanks for clarifying. Are these 2 and this guy special exceptions like that too?
Yeah, looks like it.
So it’s special treatment for beta testers, journalists and potential business partners, not random disorganization.
