It's really just two programmer's sitting down together.  One types on the
keyboard while the other acts as a second set of eyes.  After a set period
of time, the roles switch.  When I've done this in the past we switched
roles every 20 to 30 minutes.  Each line so far in our Learn Python the Hard
Way exercises are discreet units of code.  During the first session Jason I
took turns typing each line in the shared editor.  While he types I watch
for errors and think about what he is typing.  He does the same while I'm
typing.  After each exercise (or while coding) we share things we learned or
didn't understand so we can learn from each other.  Paired programming is
more about communicating/sharing ideas and accountability.  It can tend to
be more intense than coding solo because you are often times more engaged.
