Information doesn’t equal Meaning

Mark Chu-Carroll of Good Math, Bad Math has a very clear, readable, meaningful and above all informative introduction to some elementary aspects of Kolmagorov-Chaitin Information Theory. He deals in particular with the difference between information and meaning. Given the confusion in the Internet debates on the subject, in particular with the statements of some ID supporters this is a must read for anybody involved in the modern debate on the sanctity of science.
