The Art of Asking

Amanda Palmer commands attention. The singer-songwriter-blogger-provocateur, known for pushing boundaries in both her art and her lifestyle, made international headlines this year when she raised nearly $1.2 million via Kickstarter (she’d asked for $100k) from nearly 25,000 fans who pre-ordered her new album, Theatre Is Evil.

This was a very interesting video for me. I think it symbolizes many of the qualities that I find in the upcoming generation. One is openness (Amanda is certainly about that) which is predicated on their ability to trust others and two, generosity.

There is another message that I received from the video and that was her ability to connect. I wonder so many times what separates the connectors of the world from the others. Is it the sense of vulnerability you are willing to share? Your thoughts?
