One of the most sophisticated early philosophical treatments of information comes from Donald M MacKay, in his “Information, Mechanism And Meaning”.

While references to MacKay work on information can still be found in modern PI literature, his pragmatic approach to information deserved much closer scrutiny.

Perhaps it is worth coordinating efforts.
