I thought you might enjoy a video interview I just published on InfoQ:

  Linda Rising on Collaboration, Bonobos and The Brain

Last year Linda packed a room with "Are Agilists the Bonobos of the 
Software World?" She talked with InfoQ about Bonobo social rituals and 
other science that's changing her ideas about teamwork.

It talks a lot about the role of the unconscious in solving logical 
problems, why we work well in small groups, and the truth of the "do 
food" pattern :-)

get good at the practices,
then do as you will.
Many people want to skip to step three.
How do they know? " -- Ron Jeffries
