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

After a long outage, is back on-line.  To celebrate, Volker put up a link to a Rolling Stones video of Jumpin Jack Flash, with the famous lyrics "It's alright now, in fact it's a gas."  I thought it might be fun to post a different song that celebrates the moment.  Perhaps on your blog you could find a video that reflects your emotion at the news.

So far, I see that Nathan FreemanStuart McIntyreSteve McDonaghCarl Tyler and John Roling are playing along.  Charles Robinson also posted, with a couple of additional comments about Volker.

I got this question today, "How hard is it to use CoexEdit?"  Ironically, I happened to have noticed this person's name on a couple of ideas posted on IdeaJam recently, so my answer was, "What do you think?  I see you've already used it"  Needless to say, he was surprised.  Now, I will grant you that the toolbar used on IdeaJam does not take advantage of many of the available features, but using CoexEdit is as simple as editing.  If you have ever posted an idea on IdeaJam, you have used CoexEdit.  If you have posted a comment or question in the Lotusphere Sessions db this year, you have used CoexEdit.  In fact, there are a number of other companies using CoexEdit on public websites, so you may have used it multiple places.  How would you even know?  You just edit, use the intuitive icons in the toolbar to create tables or links or add graphics, and the content is saved, the content looks like it is supposed to and everything just works.  Or, you edit the way you normally do from a Notes client, and then save, and all that content looks the same on the web and also, just works.  Like most really good software, CoexEdit gets out of the way of your doing what you do best.  It is not that it isn't doing anything, it is that it is doing it well enough that you don't have to think about it.

So, are you still so sure you haven't used CoexEdit? Maybe the better question is, why doesn't your company get CoexEdit and see if your employees and customers won't notice either?
