The art of asking

Amanda Palmer, late of the Dresden Dolls and ever-itinerant, fascinating, fearless musician and artist, did a TED talk in which she shows how she got people to pay for music in the digital age – by asking them.

This talk reminds me how difficult it is for people to connect with each other, social media explosion notwithstanding.  How hard it is to hold eye contact for more than a moment; how hard to hold out your hand to someone, to speak to a stranger, to allow contact.

Watch it and learn.
