If you think xprogramming.org and extremeprogramming.org aren't for you (either by content or by presentation format), a good start would probably be a book. I started a thread for getting a list of book recommendations, which I hope will continue to grow...

I don't know details about it, but it's something like that: You begin your project doing code, little time is spend on process, and usually you work in pairs.

I'd be wary of "ten word answers" in general and suggest to take a look at some (semi)official sources such as What is XP?

Would your description of RUP be "You buy expensive software, talk to everyone on the planet, kill thousands of trees, then code." ?
You might consider delving a little deeper ;-)
