Narrative Composition with Notion

From Issue #59

The note-taking app Notion published a blog post which describes their data model.

The data model behind Notion’s flexibility.

The “data model” for Notion refers to how single-page narratives are constructed, but this is timely given the current emphasis on “narrative composition” (my phrase, but I don’t know of a better one) for the construction of cognitively unbroken stretches of rich content. (Thirteen years ago, I was calling them composite pages.)

Notion describes how they store stacked blocks of rich content to be processed and formed into narratives (a CMS for single pages?). It’s a good read.
