Steve Hebert article on Code-Talking

Code Talking: The key to great software?

A great article. I admit that I don't particularly enjoy pair programming, but Steve Hebert describes one of the best benefits of pairing. Collective code ownership is an awfully good thing in many ways. I've certainly observed that my stress level is generally less on projects that have some degree of collective ownership.

I go back and forth on pair programming as well. But the benefit to get code talking going is significant. I've had a few people mention that brown-bag lunches are good, but from I've seen they just don't spark the informal conversations that pair programming can.
