Dear Soylent Supporters,
Continuous development and improvement have always been at the core of what we do here at Soylent.
The first Soylent Beta Program was founded immediately after Rob’s original 30-day experiment. This early iteration of the program consisted of a small yet diverse group of individuals in the Bay Area who used and reviewed Soylent as it underwent heavy development. The feedback gained steered what became our first release.
A second, larger program was later founded to expand the scope of testing to include packaging, delivery, and messaging. Then, after 1.0 began shipping an even more robust program was launched to further improve the product. The multiple features and fixes we have shipped since are the direct result of many helpful testers in the Los Angeles area sampling hundreds of prototype blends.
With their help the company has grown immensely in the past year. As the powder begins to approach stability, we have increased our development throughput and greatly expanded the scope of what we are building. It has become clear that a new testing infrastructure is needed to assist in the development of the many different products and services in our pipeline.
Soylent powder is here to stay, but it is only the beginning. We hope to use this new beta platform to develop products faster, better, and with more community involvement. And we need your help! If you’re interested in participating, we encourage you to sign up at beta.soylent.com.
We can’t wait to show you what we’re building.
The Soylent Product Team
