Information as a Material (Mobile Monday Amsterdam talk transcript)

As you can tell from the recent batch of talks, I've been giving variations of the "Information as a Material" talk a lot. I gave this version at Mobile Monday in Amsterdam. They challenged me to focus on the broader impact--the bigger ideas, in essence--of information as a material and to tie it into their theme for the evening, "Data." Most of the talk is identical to the UMich/Stanford version of the talk I gave a couple of days earlier (so I'm not going to put the whole transcript here), but it goes into more detail about information as a decorative material, and how I believe that's going to change people's relationships to such technology.
