The Fear and Reward of Asking - TED Talk with Amanda Palmer
I've started reading The Art of Asking by cabaret punk queen Amanda Palmer this last week. I've followed her on social media for awhile now but never thought I would be interested in her book. I have to admit, I've been stealing away time to continue reading it. She is a far more compelling storyteller than I would have expected and her "Maximal D.I.Y." philosophy is really striking a nerve with me.
I'll write more when I finish the book, but here is the original TED talk that talks about the connection between artists and audience and how asking to build community is different from begging for attention or personal gain.
