Free Business Models

Fred Wilson, aka A VC, has a great post entitled "In Defense of Free". He discusses lightly the business models of Craig's List, Red Hat, Flickr, and Google. Points out how they give things away for free along with using open-source software, but are still profitable. Fred discusses how "information wants to be free" and how you can expect to get paid for being free. An excellent post to get the gears turning on how you could start your own business that gives something away for free.

Fred's a great blogger and I suggest you read his stuff if you're into technology and venture capital.
