Honestly… I can completely understand that there are delays. I mean, yes, it’s disappointing to hear setbacks, sure. I can say I was initially hoping to have Soylent for the convention I’m staffing this weekend, and I’m still hoping to have it before I head back to college if only for initial-groceries-trip (or lack thereof) convenience – and I know even that might not happen.
But that is entirely reasonable for something on this scale, especially considering the fact that going by the initial crowdfunding goal, it is at this point at least 10x the size of the originally planned scope. The reason I actually paid attention to this project in the first place was because of the immense degree of diligent research and data backing up the claim of a “healthy product”, and the Soylent team has continued doing an impressive job of making all data very transparent to the user base. Of course it’s not great that there are unexpected delays, but I’m not going to get unduly upset about it. I’m still getting the product I donated for, and I’m being informed when (and exactly why) these delays come up. Plus, it’s good to know that even with delays, I should be able to continue buying without a hiccup when the product does come out. Keep up the great work @JulioMiles, and I’m sure people will look back and appreciate the updates once Soylent has finally shipped
(Just my 2 cents, since I’m sure reading post after angry post gets old after a while )
