SeattlePI.com’s Todd Bishop has a good article on WinHEC and Origami. He includes this quote from Origami Experience lead program manager, Jeremy White, on the messaging and marketing of Origami:

“We’re learning, too. This is a new platform for us. So we do something, we take feedback and we learn. I can’t say next week we’re going to have a $50 million campaign,” he said. “It’s definitely something that’s under discussion: How do we do a better job of messaging? We’ve been quite frank about saying that we probably haven’t done as good a job as we could have.”
