Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Hard as it is for me to believe, Genii Software has been around for over ten years, and Midas has been around for seven, and we still don't really have a logo.  I am considering paying for a professional one, but I am willing to entertain any ideas you have, silly or otherwise.  I'd really like a GeniiSoft logo, perhaps a really simple one such as

and perhaps something a bit fancier, such as

or even fancier, such as

But even if any of these were worth having, and I am no judge, I'm afraid, I also need a way to create a Midas Inside logo for those companies, and there are more and more, who are using the Midas engine whether as an LSX, C++ version or @Midas version (there are all three).  Should that logo reflect the Genii logo, or should they be completely different,such as the totally derivative

or one that would go with the logo above, such as

Any thoughts from all of you creative, and hopefully artistic, folks?  Should I go ahead and hire the professional?  (Ironically, the main issue here is not cost but time, as now that I want a log, I want it now!)

Well, nothing is set in stone, but it is looking likely that we will offer a Midas with CoexEdit bundle that combines the flexibility and power of the Midas Rich Text LSX with the new features and plug-in capability of CoexEdit.  You could get the translation between rich text and HTML, with all the special features that have been added to CoexEdit to support web based rich text editors, all from inside LotusScript in a Midas agent, as well as in the plug-in.  Good for maximum flexibility, and a lot cheaper than buying CoexEdit from scratch.  I'll have more on this soon.
