I presume you mean to include the OLPC contractors (Tomeu, Sayamindu, Morgs)
and the more available of the staff (Eben, for instance) in the general
category with volunteers, since it seems clear to me that they are capable
of effective communication, but also clear that they do not receive
effective communication from OLPC higher-ups.
