I would like to call your attention to an article written by Roger Baker just published in Federal Computer Week, which was picked up by OSEHRA as a Google Alert.
The article "Open source is so much more than free code" underscores the challenges and benefits of embracing open source approaches, and it highlights how OSEHRA has used software management and community collaboration to become a leader in open source efforts.
Mr. Baker was instrumental in launching the open source initiative at VA, and he was elected to the OSEHRA Board of Directors last summer. He is very insightful in articulating the complex issues that make open source policy fully operational. I am sure he will be pleased to hear your perspectives.
