Amanda Palmer on Asking

Amanda Palmer, The Art Of Asking. Totally brilliant talk about Asking And Receiving instead of Demanding And (not) Receiving. Thanks to Douglas S.

Turns out I’d posted this before, some years ago. I’m glad I posted it again though, it fits well with my ideal of what is desirable to do in life, generally opening up, in the widest sense, particularly mentally and emotionally.

The first post had a comment that “it does not seem like an effective way to run a business”. I guess the poster, anonymous, refers to the lack of... control, statistics, tools, all that stuff which people think about in terms of Effective Business. My answer to that was:

Effective is as effective does. And a Kickstarter compain getting over a million, without all that much expenses, sounds like pretty good business to me.

If you’re happy living and working without rigid methods and controls, and it works, well...
