Going to iceland for material.is conf, brb. ✈️
Excited to visit the land of ice and fire, and to explore what the material of the web may be: This is a topic that keeps me busy for nearly two decades now.

For centuries we've worked with wood, metal, glass, ceramic, paper, textiles. More recently, new materials have emerged; plastics, fiberglass, silicon, and more. We understand their limitations, their affordances. We can fold, heat, manipulate and warp some of these materials. But the Internet and the Web are still very new to us. We don't fully understand them as a material.

Whee.
