comment I'm a manager. How can I improve work relationships and communication with programmers?
+1 for accepting feedback and acting on it. Possibly the most important things a manager can do.

comment Overwhelmed at Internship
Absolutely, completely, totally normal. I came to my present position with 10 years' experience, and was told by the hiring manager that he didn't expect me to be really productive for at least six months. He was right.

comment Tips for phone interviews
@vartec: In my neck of the woods, cell phone coverage is spotty at best. I expect to lose about 1/4 of every conversation I have on my cell. And (purely subjectively), I really dislike the sound quality of every cell phone I've ever used. YMMV, of course.

comment What to do if the interviewer does not give you enough time to answer?
Don't bet on the guy having a high ranking. I've been snagged into doing interviews (and told what my recommendation would be when I was done) just because we needed a certain number of people to say "no thanks" to an interviewee by corporate policy.

comment How can you explain “beautiful code” to a non-programmer?
This was my thought also, but not everyone likes or understands poetry. Music also came to mind: good song vs. bad song, but that's pretty subjective, too.

I'm old enough to be unsure of the meaning of this, but anyway: "W00t"!
