In this paper I discuss the question: what comes first, physics or information? The two have had a long-standing, symbiotic relationship for almost a hundred years out of which we have learnt a great deal.

Whatever the outcome of this debate, I argue that physicists will be able to benefit from continuing to explore connections between the two. View Full-Text
