Tufts Employee getting Press at OSCON

Paul Silevitch, one of the TUSK developers who's out at OSCON this week, is getting some press. In a Newsforge article on OSCON:

Paul Silevitch, a programmer with Tufts University's medical center, was attending OSCON to investigate potential savings and other benefits from moving more to open source software. "Right now, we're all over the place," he said. "It's not as open source as I would like." Silevitch had some licensing and other concerns, and indicated that the amount of information to wade through was somewhat overwhelming.

I'll be curious to hear what savings opportunities Paul will come back with, we're already almost 100% aligned with open source software. If I had to guess, Paul was speaking about trying to make our software open source, and thinking about how to unify the various pieces of our system.
