Amanda Palmer has pretty much become a household name in crowdfunding – she raised over $1.1 million on Kickstarter (after asking for $100,000) to launch her new album. She’s just wrapped up speaking at this year’s TED conference in California, where the talk received rave reviews. She spoke about how her experience as a statue (aka street performer) was applicable to the future of the music industry. Ultimately, it’s about how we can connect with people in a way that allows them to help you. It’s the art of asking and letting.
The talk also encapsulate our explorer ethos at The Fetch with Amanda discussing her global roaming and couch surfing experiences.

I was lucky enough to be at TED when this talk happened and it certainly sparked a lot of passionate discussion. Things like “She is awesome” to “I don’t get it”. Either way there was a lot of talk around crowd sourcing, the power of community, corporate agenda and the shifting industry of music (and commerce in general).
