  1. Hi Marna,

    I ran across your blog while trying to track down contact information for you. I really like it – especially the “home for the holidays… wanna hook up?” story. Very funny and very universal. While I’m still trying to get a hold you concerning the fact that BUST is running a feature article on home audio equipment in which Sonos is given much praise (and we have adjacent ad space for – hint/wink), I really think you should talk to our editors about adding your voice to the pages of the mag. I hope you get a call from me through more traditional channels (meaning I’ve done some successful phone number sleuthing) but until then, please accept my compliments on your work and don’t hesitate to write me back should this message reach you before we meet on a more ‘business’ plain.

    Cheers!
