Today is three weeks later, and I don’t have my Soylent, but after waiting so long I have no real expectation of ever consuming the product. Which means what, exactly? That I have learned what I came to learn.

The Silicon Valley hype cycle comes with a fierce blast of disinformation. If you don’t try out high-hype things for yourself, you can’t know the truth.

I feel bad for the people at Soylent. They must be stressed beyond belief. I wonder what’s happening inside their bubble.
