Who do you think I am?

A Johari window is a metaphorical tool intended to help people better understand their interpersonal communication and relationships. It is used primarily in self-help groups and corporate settings as a heuristic exercise.


This is my one that only has my own comments so I'd ask as an experiment for you to add your own here and you can see it change as it's added to.

A date? Love the date.

Even dating has taken on a more temporal quality now that David Tennant has taken over as the tenth incarnation of The Doctor.

In Nine and a Half Minutes by Appignanesi & Manson-Smith, a short published on the BBC Film Network he stars as a bloke on a blind date to see a move that becomes an entire relationship before the curtain has even risen. Cute, funny, and devastatingly true to life.

Venice in Peril

Have you ever had an image in your mind's eye? An image so real it has to be a memory, albeit a memory whose origins are lost in the haze of youth.

Ever since I can remember I've recalled an animation of Venice's final moments as the watery city falls into the sea while a string quartet with smooth faces of reflective glass played a classical piece.

Thanks to the magic of last.fm radio I'm no longer haunted. A piece by Rond˛ Veneziano reminded me of the Live at 3 theme tune back from old school RT╔?. When I went searching about the band, I indeed found out that the video for one of their songs. Nice to know I wasn't hallucinating though I still can't find the video.
