[David Lawrence] "Seems to me Vashi falls heavily into the spatial camp.

This seems to be the case, yes. (Thanks, David, for starting this thread. It's certainly ground that's been covered before but I still think there's a lot more to say.)

What's important to highlight here is that Vashi's use of markers is an embellishment of the all-powerful string-out method and it's fundamentally the string-out that's giving him the instant access that he wants with the markers acting as information-rich, searchable helpers.*

He also touches very briefly on the reasons why string-outs work for him creatively as well as organisationally and to me these are just as interesting to consider.

* I think in some ways the "marker vs metadata" distinction is a red herring conceptually - a marker is "metadata". It's just that we tend to use a very narrow technical definition of metadata that doesn't adequately cover the range of possibilities.
