I really struggle w/ this myself. I have a lot of trouble communicating
what we are doing in Nepal and finding out what others are up to. We
need to facilitate better communication b/w the pilot countries, OLPC,
and volunteers. I suspect that the solution is only partly technical.
OLPC really needs a full-time community manager. SJ currently is the
community manager and director of Content. He just has way too much on
OLPC should really consider hiring a full-time Community Manager. That
person would need to understand both the open-source hacker community
and field educators who don't use IRC, wikis, etc. but really care about

I'm having trouble between this list and the Wiki just finding out
who's involved and what's going on. We also need some way to get
information from children with laptops about the "user experience".
Better still, we need to bring children into this conversation and
into the writing projects.
Could we talk about how to provide better information for each other?
