Amanda Palmer's TED Talk 2013 - The Art of Asking

Just finished watching Amanda Palmer's TED Talk (see video below).

As an artist--and yes, as an author, blogging and communicator, I do consider myself that--I am deeply moved by Amanda's example and words.

Bonus points, too, for her pointing out that Metallica's "Napster BAD" stance lies at the other end of the spectrum from what she does...and stands for. 

What are your thoughts on Amanda Palmer's TED Talk? Should music and other art be given away in an act of trust? (Personally, I don't trust "the crowd" to support me or my work...but I'm not married to best-selling author Neil Gaiman, nor do I have almost 1,00,000 Twitter followers).
