Amanda Palmer Passes $1 Million On Kickstarter [NSFW]

David Meerman Scott: Amanda Palmer freaks out to celebrate hitting $1 million on Kickstarter:
Tens of thousands of Amanda's fans backed her new album before they even heard it. That's the power of a fan base and using social media to connect with fans.

One way to do an album is to have a record label fund it. As Amanda shows, there’s a better way: Have your fans fund it and then you retain control.

When I was a DJ at WZBC I used to play songs from The Dresden Dolls all the time, especially Coin Operated Boy.

    Oh, that is just an expression of pure joy. The fall at the end is the best! Congrats to you and the band!

    Amanda Palmer's an idiot. This is not the future of music. A major label made her big, not kickstarter.
