"Have you ever look at the concept of information as a nominalization? We use this notion as if something could be about something else in itself. "

I always liked Pierces way of dealing with symbols, basically it goes like this; a symbol has three parts: the sign, the object in the world it refers to and an interpreter (who connects the sign with the object). Gets rid of a lot of mystical metaphysics like meaning and such.

I tend to think that one can reason analogously regarding information when asking the metamodel question:
How is information about something else?
Thanks to an interpreter - an actor who connects the information with the world.
