Linux Journal Announces "Rebuilding the World with Free Everything", a SxSW Interactive Panel

Houston, TX - March 11, 2009 - Linux Journal, the original magazine of the Linux community, announces "Rebuilding the World with Free Everything", a Linux Journal panel to be presented at SxSW Interactive Tuesday, March 17.

"Free" is the future of business. Steve Larsen says the world has more than 500,000 open-source code bases now -- all free. That's a tall challenge for a huge pile of building material. Linux Journal presents a panel of creative hackers and business crafters to discuss constructing the future.

Panelists include Linux Journal Webmistress and Drupal-advocate Katherine Druckman; Linux Journal Senior Editor Doc Searls, also a fellow with the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and the Center for Information Technology and Society at UC Santa Barbara; Linux Journal columnist and filmBUZZ founder Dave Taylor; as well as Linux Journal friends William "whurley" Hurley, founder and CEO of InvisiSoft Inc., and Chris Anderson, of LongTail fame and Editor-in-Chief of Wired Magazine.

"Rebuilding the World with Free Everything" will be presented in Room A of the Austin Convention Center at 3:30pm, Tuesday, March 17, 2009 as a part of SxSW Interactive and is open to all SxSW Interactive badge holders. The panel will immediately follow the Chris Anderson/Guy Kawasaki keynote in the same room.
