[Simon Ubsdell] "The string-out method is the same thing as laying out our ingredients on the work surface (albeit on a vastly long work surface where you can nonetheless grab anything instantly as if it were all within arm's reach). The bin method is the same thing as hunting around through your kitchen storage for each ingredient in turn as you discover you need it."

Poppycock. (respectfully)

Pancakers must lay out those ingredients because they've never had a systematic facility to call up a pre-measured amount of the substance/spice you want, when they want it - instantly. If there was, pre-lining up a bunch of ingredients in "semi-bulk" form on the counter would be silly. Particularly if the "call up" system can expand or reduce the actual measure used by the cook precisely enough to satisfy their desire to adjust on the fly.

I can arrange dozens of virtual "pancakes" via keyword collections and instantly switch between them - focusing on each as I choose. I can also aggregate more than one into a new assembly. That gives me ALL the visual cuing pancakers get - but in a system that lets me adjust my visual focus as I choose, fluidly and efficiently.

Once again you're going to be hard pressed to convince me that the system based on the older style has more than a shadow of the utility of the newer system.

Both are functional, surely. One is MUCH more refined and is designed to present super-efficient previously undelivered options to the editor "in the flow" of content assembly.
