clip: the amazing Amanda Palmer on TED and the art of asking

April 11, 2013

It’s hard to know about Amanda Palmer – pardon me Amanda Fucking Palmer – if you spend any time squatting on social media. Or indeed on the web anywhere. She’s a musician, fun gal, idea pusher, and, as I’ve discovered here (thanks Kirsten Andrews), not just a generous person but a politically, consciously, provocatively generous person. Since generosity ranks second on my list of favourite traits, behind gratitude, I’m kinda in love with Amanda these days. Here’s her TED talk. And here is some of her music.



  1. This was a pretty interesting talk. I think we’re going to eventually realize that she’s very much ahead of her time.

    • I hope so! She’s brilliant and fearless
