20 bucks says Soylent is a viral marketing campaign | The Verge Forums
Could it be really real? Could this startup kid be stupid enough to name his powdered food substitute after a fictional product famously made from ground-up humans? If so, who was the target audience? Doesn’t everyone know that SOYLENT GREEN IS MADE OUT OF PEOPLE? Besides, do people even want to eat faster? Call me old-fashioned, but I thought people enjoyed eating. To me, the prospect of consuming powdered food 21 times a week seems about as appealing as being fed intravenously, which is to say not appealing at all. 

Today in the startup world solving problems that nobody actually has.
