Have you participated in open source or blogging? What happens when that code or content becomes popular? What should you do to leverage that traffic and influence instead of letting it create more demands on you?

This session is a discussion of what led to creating a blog with millions of visitors, popular open source code components, talks and workshops given around the world ...all for free. We'll look at the intense idealism of free and where that can get you...but also the power it has to enslave you with more work and demands on you.

We'll discuss: - gaining the right set of eyeballs and connections for what you are looking to do in life. - building a new community from the ground up with proper expectations in mind. - remaining independent without selling out when creating free content. - gaining the choice to give something away for free vs free being the only choice.

Join this session if you want to learn more about the power open source and blogging has to get you where you want to go in life, as well as it's pitfalls and how to avoid them.
