I wrote a blog post about "information-theoretic considerations concerning life and its origins" for PBS's Blog "The Nature of Reality", but as they own the copyright to that piece, I cannot reproduce it here. You are free to follow the link, though: "Living Bits: Information and the Origin of Life".
I'm not complaining: the contract I signed clearly spelled out ownership. I can ask for permission to reproduce it, and I may.
The piece is based in part on an article that is currently in review. You can find the arxiv version here, and some other bloggers comments here and here.
Creationists also had something to say about that article, but I won't link any of it here. After all, this is a serious blog.
