    Hi Scott, not sure about your concept of "infocentrism", because, though I absolutely agree that context is very often neglected, it too can be understood in terms of information: it can be considered the key that decodes the "central" information, be that DNA or whatever. For instance, Wittgenstein's "language game" is the key that unlocks the meaning of any utterance.

    I have my own take on information, discussed here way back but not recently. I'll restrain myself to mentioning the website for now:, where mmmi stands for mind, matter, meaning and information.

    Best regards,
