ideas and things into boxes - setting the Index
I usually don't agree with putting ideas and things or people into boxes.
My research method is usually based on quality, but as I have become a squidooholic, some quantitative measures have to take place.
One of my favourite quotes about this methodology is by Luce Irigaray: "Becoming means achieving the fullness of all that one could be. This process is obviously open-ended."
Welcome to the Index, my lensography. Hope you enjoy the ride!
