Open Source liveblogging at SXSWi

Coverage of open source at SXSWi begins with a liveblog tomorrow.

I'll be at several panels focusing on Open Source while at SXSW's Interactive Festival, starting with Selling Your Milk When the Cow Is Free, on Friday, which I'll liveblog. Other sessions will be covered in other ways and posted throughout the next week.

Here's the official description of the panel, which begins at 3:30 p.m., Central time:

Using open source is one thing, but can your idea succeed if you give your own work away? Scrappy entrepreneurs will discuss that question, share their own experiences with open source business models, and offer advice to others considering open source licenses.

The panelists:

• Tiffany Farriss, president and strategist at Inc. and member of the Drupal Association Board of Directors.

• Jeff Eaton, software architect for Lullabot Consulting and a core developer for the Drupal project.

• Evan Prodromou, founder and CEO of StatusNet Inc, the Open Source microblogging company.

• Eric Gundersen, president and co-founder of Development Seed.

• Brad Fitzpatrick, "member of the technical staff" at Google and founder of LiveJournal.
