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
