Author Note

Peter Frishauf led the founders' team that created Medscape in 1995. At the time, he served as CEO of SCP Communications, Inc., the Manhattan-based medical information company that he had started 14 years earlier. He served as Medscape CEO until February 1998 and as chairman of its Executive Committee and a member of its Board of Directors through its IPO until May 2000, when the company merged with MedicaLogic/Medscape, Inc., where he was senior advisor. MedicaLogic sold Medscape to WebMD in December 2001, and in 2002, Peter's formal relationship with the company ended.
