The art of asking
Amanda Palmer’s TED talk was just posted, and I thought some of you might be interested in seeing it (even if you didn’t follow the whole Kickstarter thing and/or aren’t an AFP fan). Asking for help is such a simple concept, and yet so many negative connotations have been attached to it to the point where it’s an uncommon occurrence. Which is a shame, if you think about it. We’re all in this together, so why shouldn’t we help each other? I think AFP’s got it right. I’m also a firm believer in couch-surfing, as a couple of you lovely people know.
