Spontaneity has its time and its place.
As a solo-coder, when I hit a brick wall, it's great to get a second pair of eyes, and I often code at anti-social hours in my time zone.
It can take several hours to set up a suitable Stack Overflow question.
It would be great to have a Pair Now! button somewhere, like the random pick-up options in MMO gaming.
