This Is How Software Engineering is Done - Paul Wheaton Style

So, I have two videos here that the CodeRanch audience might find amusing.

The first is a very short commentary by Trailboss Paul Wheaton with regards to how software engineering is done:

Video - How Software Engineering is Done (Loud Audio)

The second is a short clip showing Paul approaching the Father of Java, James Gosling, at TSSJS 2011 and asking him for a favor or two. It's just amusing seeing Paul tower over James.

Video - Paul Wheaton talks with James Gosling (no sound though)

Hope you enjoy!
