We have just survived a brief period in history where we all disembodied ourselves from the physical world and focussed on the digital and the informational. It was definitely fun times for many, but more interesting is the way the experience allows us to re-engage with the physical world now we are on the other side of it. Atoms and bits need not be strangers and looking at the physical world with a mind to how bits describe it looks like it might be a pretty interesting new perspective. This talk will wander accross some of the ramifications of looking at structure as information - physically self replicating machines, open source hardware, file sharing for hardware hobbyists and why the hottest tool in your garage will be connected to your PC.
