I can estimate how long it will take me to drive to Des Moines, and be "close enough." There are lights, stops, traffic, weather to consider, but mostly it's me choosing route and rate.
Route has speed limits, traffic features, raw distance. Those are not up to me, really. I have limits, but the limits make the trip predictable.
The fewer items are under my control, the less likely the estimation.

Can I get to des moines in 3 hours? Probably, if you provide me a fast plane or fast helicopter and clear weather. Otherwise, no.

I have noticed that people who say «  #pairProgramming is not for me », have generally had painful experiences that they have not yet had the opportunity to overcome.
The discomfort felt is often so personal that they wished to close this box with all that it contained.

They leave then with a certain bitterness and an idea which allows to console themselves: "it is not for me".
Pairing is like communicating. It is sometimes extremely complicated.

This ultimately requires a lot of skill, maturity, as well as a good knowledge about oneself.

I did a talk to a team at work yesterday about #PairProgramming. They’ve been trying it out, but they’re all new to it, so I recommend @LlewellynFalco’s Strong Style Pair Programming.

An episode of @bosslevelpod discussed a similar idea a while ago:…. We like social media *because* it is often dull. We seek those rare good tweets.
