TEDTalks: Amanda Palmer: The Art of Asking

Amanda Palmer is the kind of person that the more you learn about, the cooler they become.  If she seems popular around here it’s with good reason considering her stunning music videos and shows.  In this video we see her giving a TED Talk on the new ways that artists can interact with their audience; talking about her experiences such as being a living statue, and crowdfunding her latest album on Kickstarter to the tune of a record-breaking $1.2 million.  She says it’s just about creating a connection, which she does so well that you almost want to join the audience in the standing ovation at the end.
