On the ontology of information

This is a video of Rafael Capurro discussing the ontological life of information in the digital world, from over on BITagora. He seeks to connect the Latin notion of informatio to the form that defines things, and thus connect the modern philosophy of information with some rather more submerged roots in medieval and classical ontology and metaphysics.  It’s in Spanish, but if you turn on captions and translate to English, the essence of what he says can be followed.

Rafael Capurro’s bibliography is here. Lots of fascinating stuff, and well worth investigating.
