After viewing this TED video, I instantly became a fan of Amanda Palmer's vision of the future of music funding. Watch it here- http://www.ted.com/talks/amanda_palm...of_asking.html Now, Amanda Palmer was already famous when she started her kickstarter project, which produced almost 1.2 million dollars. She talks about the real live connections she made with people which over the years numbered thousands. I'm really curious what you think of her talk and what you think we will see happening in the future of music funding. Personally, I do not pay money to listen to digital music. I also would never charge people to download and listen to my own music. With the technology we have, why not make your music and work readily available for as many people to experience? That's what this is all about. So how does an artist make a living doing this? Not all of us can be Amanda Palmer, but she makes some very good points.
