The Arist team focuses on making fancy websites vs building an actual product

  • The last Kickstarter update was on February 18th, 2015. Since then, however, the creators have had time to launch a completely new website. Yet they claim they are too busy to communicate with those that contributed over $800,000 to their project.
  • Not only are they building potempkin websites, but Nelson and Benson Chiu also run a¬†coffee tasting/making class see The address is 50-56 Paterson Street, Unit 1A, Causeway Bay. Hong Kong. It’s also their office, and clearly many of the promo photos for Arist came from there.

This shop has nothing to do with the tech business… Basically these side businesses, media coverage, and marketing bullshit have sucked out the time for this 2-men team and I wonder whether they have any time and energy left to put on the product itself (which is already something out of their expertise).
