      I can address the PairProgramming issue.  There is a great tool online for this.  www.BuddyHelp.com.    It allows for remote control of a computer, whiteboard tools, etc.  Check it out.  I also use it for Customer Support.

      Hi,
       
      I am new to the concepts of the XP model, so please forgive me if I ask the
      question that has been asked a 1,000 times.
       
      XP seems to be based on local programming. Teams all within the same region
      working together. How does it marry to a global development project with
      multiple teams and people working on one goal ?

      Hm, for me XP advocates communication on all possible levels: code, user
      story cards, task cards, white boards, body language while pair programming,
      yelling through the room :-), buying chocolate for the team, pointing with
      the finger on a code line on the screen,... (especially this last one makes
      doing XP in virtual teams very difficult), and also communication about
      communication ("please, don't yell through the room, I don't like it"). The
      guide for best communication practice is: do it respectfully, honestly,
      directly, as simple as possible, as complex as needed. Communication is a
      vehicle to project success, not end in itself. The project success depends
      on our flexible behavior concerning change. Doing communication the right
      way helps us in this, doing it the wrong way will prevent our success. Open
      Source projects show us, that a lot of stuff can be communicated through
      code. Working with XP, we should not ignore this option but leverage it for
      the project success.
