Amanda Palmer gave a TED Talk! Amazing, right?
The talk, "The art of asking," is about the relationship between artist and audience, artist and fan. Much of it undoubtedly was written in light of her unbelievably successful kickstarter campaign, in which she raised over 1 MILLION DOLLARS. (The scandal that followed, about not paying musicians who she hired for individual shows, if I'm remembering correcly, has yet to be addressed.)
At any rate, effing Amanda Palmer is a rock star—enjoy:
