Amanda Palmer’s TED Talk about learning to ask contains good advice for just about any kind of artist who wants to connect with a community with a sense of give and take. I think this includes code artists. Maybe all of us introverted geekie folks leaning over our computers all day could learn a little something from the touchie feelie types?
After posting this I saw a tweet from Chris Coyier at CSS Tricks. He wanted to screen cast a complete web design makeover. He asked for $3500 in help on Kickstarter. Look what happened. Learn to ask.
