Invitation — The Art of Asking, Amanda Palmer Style

A friend sent me this TED Talk, The Art of Asking, featuring Amanda Palmer. It is 13 minutes.

Amanda Palmer is an American musician and performer. I don’t know her music, but will get curious. What I do know is some key values on invitation that are part of her story recorded in this TED Talk, and that feel spot on.

I particularly like:

  • random closeness
  • falling into the audience, trusting each other
  • I become the hat
  • I didn’t make them; I asked them
  • I trust you this much; should I?
  • ask without shame
  • the standing ovation that she gets
