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.
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.
