Amanda Palmer

Rock Star. Crowdfunding Pioneer. Author, The Art of Asking.

Believes you shouldn’t make people pay for art, you should let them.

Thinks wasting a single second on regret is a tragedy and that while the past still exists, you shouldn’t let it strangle you.

“Those who can ask without shame are viewing themselves in collaboration with—rather than in competition with—the world.”

Believes art is fundamentally a relationship between the maker and the receiver.

Thinks the the challenge of the Internet is to remember that behind every single piece of binary code is a flesh-and-blood human being.

“There’s really no honor in proving that you can carry the entire load on your own shoulders. And…it’s lonely.”

Believes people on the Internet have become addicted to outrage and the only answer is to feel empathy for other people.

Thinks the mistake a lot of artists make is thinking that what works for the person next to them is going to work for them.
