Ankündigung einer Fusion - Fidelity matters

In any language, fidelity matters, especially when the loss of fidelity includes the loss of important information. Even if you don't read German, you can see that the section titles are lost and large amounts of space left in their places with standard Traveler. Note, this is a different issue than the loss of section titles with the Notes client rendering which are totally lost. In this case, they simply don't appear because the text is white on a dark background and the section background i

Colorful road map-ish thing

I thought it might be useful to see a general overview of how the Genii Software products (current and future) work together and overlap. Then, my natural color blindness and lack of UI sensibility struck. I might have also eaten too much leftover pretzels and dip from our Super Bowl party, So, for what it is worth, this is how I see the world. Welcome to my brain. The AppsFidelity part is coming very soon, but tentative marketing-speak blah blah blah at your on risk blah blah blah.

I don't tend to spend much energy on certifications and such. After all, either our products do what you need them to do at a price you can afford, or you don't give a wiggly wombat whether we are business partners or whether our software is certified to zap bugs while it does the dishes. But we have been quietly setting up to support resellers for CoexLinks Fidelity, and it only seems fair to them to have some spiffy IBM certification since they don't have the advantage of my rapier sharp w

The king is dead - long live the king
Thu, Jan 29th 2015 3:00p   Ben Langhinrichs
Paul Withers made an interesting comment to me today on Twitter (see below). Below that, see a portion of a slide from one of these sessions, ID106. Finally, see my video, First Test of Midas in Notes browser plugin recorded, released the first day the browser plugin was available publicly. The interesting thing that these three together point out is that IBM acted as if it could simply kill the king and eliminate the monarchy, but instead just had to replace it with another king.

A question for the Developers and Product Managers
Wed, Jan 28th 2015 2:50p   Ben Langhinrichs
A question which you could pose at Ask the Developers and Product Managers is why the following email, sent internally via Notes to another user in the same domain, looks as bad as it does if that user happens to be reading from their mobile device or iNotes? Why hasn't this been fixed? Why can CoexLinks Fidelity do this without access to the core code when Domino and Traveler cannot within the core code? And if they can't, why not work out a deal with Genii Software to make it happen? Of cou

A preview in lieu of SpeedGeeking
Tue, Jan 27th 2015 5:45p   Ben Langhinrichs
One of the many entertaining (though stressful) activities at Lotusphere (now ConnectED) over the past few years has been SpeedGeeking. It is fun to watch people cram so much content and fun into a five minute session. But since I couldn't make it to ConnectED this year, I thought I'd do a second spur-of-the-moment sneak preview of AppsFidelity. Since 5 minutes is a long time on the web, even if it is a short time at a conference, I decided to do a one minute SpeedGeeking sort of preview of eP

Many in our community are headed to Florida for ConnectED (the conference formerly known as Lotusphere). Many, unfortunately including me, are not. But happily, there is still a Lotusphere Sessions database (and even more happily, I didn't have to make it). In deference to the shifting conference name, it is called ConnectOsphere 15. But this sneak preview has almost, but not completely, nothing to do with ConnectED. It just so happens that the ConnectOsphere sessions database provides a perf

Notes and Verse shine while GMail and Outlook falter
Mon, Jan 12th 2015 8:40a   Ben Langhinrichs
Granted, I know that IBM Verse is only in beta, but Mitch helped me test to see if the graceful degradation that is needed for both GMail and Outlook is also necessary for IBM Verse.

A visual representation might help

I was creating a slide show about CoexLinks Fidelity, and thought about using a Venn Diagram to show the expanding opportunity, but thought this might speak to people better.

Graceful degradation or Progressive enhancement
Thu, Jan 8th 2015 8:40a   Ben Langhinrichs
No, I'm not talking about getting older, though my knees are certainly experiencing (graceful?) degradation and my glasses provide progressive enhancement. Instead, I am talking about two ways of viewing the design of complex web content so that the experience is as good as the device or browser or client allows, but does not break if the device or browser or client doesn't support some feature. Since our area of expertise is rendering email from Notes to... anywhere, we face this issue from
