A novel view on the music industry from the perspective of a musician who encourages the free dissemination of her music. Amanda Palmer simply asks people who enjoy her music to help support her and is incredibly successful. I hope many artists going forward embrace the internet as a means of bidirectionally connecting with fans as Amanda has. That's the beauty of the internet; media doesn't have to be a one way street nor does it have seemingly omnipotent gatekeepers restricting access (with the exception of some governments).
You can visit her website and listen to all of her music, and if you really enjoy it, donate a little so she can make more in the future.
