Authoring Software:

- 10 of 15 people use Latex either regularly or can help others learn.

Communications:

Not surprisingly, everyone is either comfortable or very comfortable with email. There's less comfort with other tools, but everyone is interested in several of these: Google Docs, Dropbox, blogs, wikis, or Moodle.
