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

I just got my account today (or rather, just found the email saying it was set up on the 17th), so I decided to record my very first email to IBM verse and my experience with it. Since I have been curious how IBM verse would handle highly formatted email, I went ahead and sent several emails through CoexLinks Fidelity to see how Verse would handle them.
Remember, I recorded this straight through, and while I edited it down to make it brief and recorded the narration after that, this is my first time using IBM Verse directly. (Some may remember that a friend was kind enough to run one message through for me back in the beta days.) Obviously, I haven't scratched the surface of the other features of Verse, but if people enjoy this sort of thing, I'd be happy to record that as well.
You can try CoexLinks Fidelity with your own IBM Verse account  by requesting an evaluation license, installing the software, adding a few lines to the NOTES.INI and restarting the server, and then sending email to your IBM Verse account. As soon as we can get our own installable version, I can even see how to improve that as well.
Best viewed in HD. Closed captions will be provided shortly., though the majority of the impact is visual.

In case you wonder how collapsed sections render with CoexLinks Fidelity (the kind of thing we have to worry about so you don't have to), remember that whatever we do in Tulsa, we also have to do in Tel Aviv, except backwards in heels, er, I mean right to left.

If you don't read Hebrew (I certainly don't), concentrate on the shape of the section titles... or just notice that the section titles are completely missing in the Notes rendering. No matter how important the section title is for categorization, identification or clarification, the section title just goes poof!  You may also note that in email systems that render less well, such as Outlook 365 where gradient colors are not supported, CoexLinks Fidelity makes sure they degrade nicely to a solid color.

You can try CoexLinks Fidelity just by requesting an evaluation license, installing the software, adding a few lines to the NOTES.INI and restarting the server. No other changes needed. Just add fidelity and stir.
