Abstract: 

This is an overview talk about my paper with Matt Baker with the same title. I will introduce matroids with coefficients, give a rough idea of how ordered blueprints enter the picture and how the moduli space of matroids is constructed, and then 
finally turn to an outline of a new proof of Tutte's theorem that a matroid is regular if and only if it is binary and orientable.
