Medsphere so far

Medsphere could have been the “RedHat of Medical IT” that our community desperately needs. Instead they are the “Enron of Medical IT”. For those that are not aware, Medsphere sued their own founders, Scott Shreeve and Steve Shreeve for $50 Million Dollars. As it turns out evidence that at least some of Medsphere’s claims were false can be found in my inbox. After working for weeks with Eric Raymond to see if the community could negotiate a peaceful resolution, I was forced to out Medsphere for betraying the community. I was interviewed regarding Medsphere by Tony at Free Software Magazine.

Since that time, Kizer has announced that he is leaving Medsphere and Frank Pecaitis left for GE . For more Medsphere fun, you can read the entire “Medsphere” category on LinuxMedNews

You will be hearing more about Medsphere as time goes on. But I wanted to have a small blurb about what has happened so far.

Sum it all up

I have been running Postnuke as my blog engine for as long as I can remember. I have received complaints from a fellow blogger that it is difficult to track what I am doing via a single RSS feed. Now I need to blog something that requires a picture. To accomodate the new requirements I am moving to WordPress, which is better focused as a blog engine. Rather than “migrating” my old postnuke posts, I will sum them up here.

  • Please take a look at the Byrons Gallery which I think is really excellent.
  • I would also like to point to a most important post over at my cousins blog which honors my brother. Thanks, Angus, it meant alot to those of us in Texas who have not been able to see the stone yet.
  • I have been interviewed about FreeB and medical billing by LinuxMedNews.
  • I once had a trailer, but I managed to turn it over. Pics of my Home Wreck
  • Byron Trotters Memorial Page, probably more moving than anything is the Guestbook.

Thats it. Thats the relevant content from a blog that I have had for two years. I have been a bad blogger…
