Wired interviews Nick Millington :: Head of Product at Sonos

by Volker Weber


This is a fantastic interview with Nick Millington. I had the opportunity to speak with Nick Millington, Andy Schulert, John MacFarlane, and Patrick Spence at the tail end of 2015, and I find this interview to be very accurate. There is only one minor thing: the Play:5 saw the light of day as ZonePlayer S5 and was later rebranded. I was in the beta program for that speaker in 2009. It's also funny that Nick mentions the Russian iPod, which was a term invented here, picked up by Thomas (Meyer) and John and then made popular inside the company. The part I like best is when Nick calls John "a guy who lives three or four years in the future, and he takes for granted things that don't actually exist yet".

Interesting article. I especially like this "We had a saying in the early days of Sonos that if there's one thing that absolutely has to work in version 1 of the software it's the ability to upgrade to version 1.1,"
