You have just written that “pair programming is not a cultural fit for many individuals” and then you are trying to say that it does not have a negative impact on diversity?

Diversity is not just about having couple of Indian programmers on the team. It is also about people with an Asperger’s syndrome, women with children who would rather work at a different timetable then 9 to 5 or often work from home, people with very poor eyesight who might find it difficult to share a monitor, people with hearing problems who can find it difficult to discuss the code and generally people who just don’t work well when have to talk at the same time.
