The Art Of Asking

Love her or hate her, Amanda Palmer is the poster child for Music 3.0, where social media is at the heart of an artist's interaction with her fans. Regardless how you feel about her, you can't argue with her success.

Here's a video of AP's presentation at the recent TED 2013 conference entitled "The Art Of Asking," and it outlines her basic strategy. Fair warning - it's a lot more human than you might expect, and received a standing ovation from the normally jaded and tough TED audience.

A good example of corrupted altruism.

After raising the $1.2 million she advertised for professional musicians to perform on tour for nothing but 'beer' and good vibes:

“we will feed you beer, hug/high-five you up and down (pick your poison), give you merch, and thank you mightily for adding to the big noise we are planning to make.”

You'd think she'd know better.
