TechCast Episode #26 - Andy Hunt on Pragmatic Thinking and Learning

This show features an interview from ETE with Andy Hunt, co-founder of the Pragmatic Programmer and Pragmatic Bookshelf.  His seventh book, Pragmatic Thinking and Learning, delves into how the brain processes information, and how you can use both the logical and intuitive aspects of cognitive ability to maximize your abilities.

It's an interesting talk - his keynote had everybody floored.  He was nice enough to come find me at our 11:00 scheduled interview time.  Here is his interview, as well as a few minutes of audio from the Deconstruction Zone, a Wednesday Evening kick-off event where people, umm, smashed stuff.  (see pictures from the PhillyETE Flickr Group for details!)
