      Yes, it may be that pairing isn't, strictly speaking, the best way of
      working. It's pretty limited, and doesn't reach the richness displayed
      by human society. It's just /so/ much better than working alone. I'm
      sure we've barely scratched the surface on better ways to collaborate in
      software development.

        Similarly, my friend, who has an autistic son and was one time diagnosed
        with aspergers, was told by his high school counselor:

        "You can be either a garbage man or a computer programmer."

        He chose the latter.
