I was revisiting posts about Rob and found one by davecortesi linking to old posts that had been disappeared from this site. The claim is frequently made that Rob never advocated that people might go 100% Soylent, but I think that careful perusal of his posts might show otherwise. In particular, I remembered that Rob told the press that he no longer had a refrigerator, and speculated about how people’s worlds would change without refrigerators.
If Rob wasn’t thinking about people going 100% Soylent, where would their fridges go?
I miss his sci-fi speculations about the future of society, and strongly suspect that they were removed because they weren’t in line with the new administration’s plans for Soylent. I wonder what the real story about the company’s evolution was? In Washington D.C., there would be a memoir out with the real story, but I suppose we will never see such a thing with regard to this (fine) company.
