[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.
