I have a feeling I’m going to always miss you, and that it’ll always stay that way: missing you.
Soylent hits its 1.0 formula, nears release
Soylent, the food replacement from former engineer Rob Rhinehart, has hit one of its final milestones before release: the formula has been finalized and frozen, and large-scale manufacturing and packing is underway. Just after Thanksgiving, Rhinehart posted a blog entry discussing the changes in “Soylent 1.0” versus the beta 0.89 version we consumed for a week back at the end of summer.At the time, the Soylent folks estimated that backers of the company’s wildly successful crowdfunding effort would be receiving their initial shipments of Soylent in December; this estimate has now been revised to January. The main reason for the delay has been due to the small Soylent team having to find ways to cope with the realities of mass-producing their product. The beta packages of Soylent sent out to the small list of testers were all hand-stuffed, whereas the actual production version is being mixed and packaged on an industrial scale by a specialist company called a “co-packer.” (via Soylent hits its 1.0 formula, nears release | Ars Technica)
Every day feels
Like a heart attack
That I’ve learned to
