What the heck did Soylent ever do to this lady?


#1

"A tech bro basically rebrands Slimfast as Soylent, for example, and suddenly he is a visionary creating the “food of the future” and getting millions in funding. "

If it were my company and someone at The Guardian was alleging that it was part of a toxic startup culture, I think I’d call my lawyers.


#2

On Twitter she goes a good deal farther and alleges criminal activity.

If the shoe fits for Uber, all right, but I don’t see the connection to Soylent.


#3

The good thing about her comment is that Soylent is becoming so well known that even know-nothings are talking about it!


#4

Gotta get those Soylent clicks in :slight_smile:


#5

There’s plenty to criticize about Uber (I haven’t read this piece). Too bad if she then threw in Soylent as an aside without doing research on it.


#6

I’ve been trying to use Lyft more since all the Uber harassment/abuse allegations came out. Pretty easy to switch.


#7

I use cabs. There’s a decent app for them in my city (I can get a cab in two to four minutes, typically), and taxis are, you know, regulated, which I appreciate.


#8

I’ll check to see if my local cab company has an app or not. Being more of the libertarian persuasion, I generally do not like regulation, though.


#9

My city has its own taxi app, but the Curb app (which I downloaded for when I was in Los Angeles last fall) works in a lot of cities–65, according to their web site.


#10

Yet another article that has absolutely nothing to do with Soylent but mentions them in order to ride their coattails towards more clicks. It’s just so lazy and dishonest.
