SoylentNews is people

Some soylentils have an interest in the Soylent food product, which claims to be complete, scientifically-based nutrition. Now Farhad Manjoo at the New York Times has spent a week and a half living off of it, and found it disappointing:

I just spent more than a week experiencing Soylent, the most joyless new technology to hit the world since we first laid eyes on MS-DOS.

Read the rest at the NYT: The Soylent Revolution Will Not Be Pleasurable.

    How much longer for those votes to be counted so this site can be finally renamed and disassociated from this idiotic powdered food craziness?

    Seriously, how long does it take for a bunch of geeks to cook up a 50 line python/ruby/whatever script to tally up data from a couple hundred emails?

    This this this this! Begone stupid, poorly chosen site name, please. It's a dumb anchor dragging this site down.

      To the OP, I agree and would have thought this to be a done issue a long time ago. To you, what is a name? My parents gave me a name. It would not have been the one I would want, but it was mine long enough for me to accept it as such. It is not so much the name and the character that effects our view by others. Call me Jim, call me Number 5, call me Wyzltschly; if I act like a jerk then I'll known as such; My name matters little if I act with honor other then I'd be known as (8 of 4) that acted with honor.

      This is not a Johnny Cash song, but a web site that wont (or should not) change based on the name.

    God, just make the colour selectable.

    Has nobody heard of the effects of colour??
