I like neither the heart (more "love" than "live") nor the laptop (too 
complex and tied to one technology). I think more of live electricity 
and live performance.

How about a lightning symbol? Or just leave the nice clean new OSGeo 
compass and use the text "Live" or "LIVE" or "⚡ LIVE ⚡" (with the 
Unicode HIGH VOLTAGE SIGN) where projects have "Project"? This would 
avoid brand dilution. Something like:

⚡ LIVE ⚡

All-caps might be sufficiently distinctive. The lightning bolts might be 
too much, but they are not unprecedented:
AC/DC - Thunderstruck (Official Video)

Kind regards,
