The updates have completely stopped coming from the Soylent Team. I ordered one week early on. I realize that it’ll be a long time before I get my soylent. Fine. I just can’t understand why they are refusing to discuss progress on the queue. Bad news would be better than no news to me. Here’s a list of things I’d be really excited to hear:
- Our brown rice protein supplier can’t provide what we need, until we get a new protein source nailed down orders have stopped going out.
- Packing and shipping takes way more time and effort than we expected. We’re shipping at a snail’s pace, but are looking into better packing and shipping systems that will speed things up eventually.
- We’re working on the gas problem. Until we get it solved we’ve decided to only ship reorders, we want anybody starting soylent to start up without the risk of the intestinal problems some people saw.
About the only update that would be worse than this silence would be “We decided we’re tech people, not food people, so we took your money and we’re giving up. Suck it up, losers.” I’m pretty sure that a lot of other people feel the same way. So I’m just puzzled why the weekly updates stopped, and why there is no hint of what is going on with the shipping queue?
