Amanda Palmer: The Art of Asking / by Evan Troxel

This is an inspiring video from the TED website that reinforces my thoughts regarding making art = the best way to live. I love how confident Amanda is. This is a big lesson for me as I struggle through trying new things with my Method website as I try to help other artists get better at what they do.

Don't make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan.

How can this apply to architects? We already are really bad at working too much for free and not asking to be paid for the difficult work we do.
