Edit This was a bad idea and I won't try it again - I did get one person to call me and tell me about their experiences in this field though and I think that's what I'll ask for in the future.  Sorry, People of the Internet!

Dear Plussbuddies, I want to learn a little bit about Pair Programming. Would you too? If you've got a few minutes and an interest, would someone read me the Wkipedia entry on Pair Programming while I walk my dogs? Is that a weird thing to ask? I don't think so. My number is 1-503-703-1815 ttys

I can call in 5 minutes if someone else hasn't beat me to the punch.
 
This feels like a job for Mechanical Turk or something. What about a screen reader?
 
Pair programming is an agile software development technique in which two programmers work together at one workstation. One, the driver, writes code while the other, the observer (or navigator), reviews each line of code as it is typed in. The two programmers switch roles frequently.

While reviewing, the observer also considers the strategic direction of the work, coming up with ideas for improvements and likely future problems to address. This frees the driver to focus all of his or her attention on the "tactical" aspects of completing the current task, using the observer as a safety net and guide.
 
It's funny to me that people are making these suggestions. One of the core concepts & benefits behind pair programming is the human element. Adding a second pair of eyes, ears, opinions, and ideas is the main reason for the exercise.
