When did Smart Homes get so dumb?

When Did Smart Homes Get So Dumb?

I have to admit, I never thought my house was dull or bland to begin with. It has everything I love inside: from my husband and child, to my clever dog (seriously she’s great) to my favorite music on demand and instant access to some of the most incredible cultural moments happening anywhere. If you step back and think about it, it’s kind of amazing.

That’s why we’re introducing the Sonos Sound Collective, a community of seven badass, creative women in Los Angeles who will spend the year exploring what it means to listen better. Throughout the year, each woman will spark conversations by asking questions about the world around (and within) themselves, using sound as an exploratory tool to craft a deeper dialogue.

Honoring Women In Music and Tech On International Women’s Day

I’ll never forget the night I decided I was finished with the music industry. I’d spent the better part of the 90s in a band, singing and playing bass in clubs across the country. I also managed the business side of things, making sure we got paid and even brokering a record deal with a label.

By 1999, I’d lost count of all the venues we’d played and all the cocky sound guys who felt compelled to mansplain my amp to me during sound checks. And I was tired. Tired of being talked down to. Tired of fighting for the money I earned. Tired of trying to make my voice heard whenever I was on stage (thanks again, sound guy), as well as when I was off.
