The idea that information might be the key to understanding quantum mechanics is often met with the Bell's dismissive comment: 'Information? Whose information? Information about what?' But we donít ask these questions about a USB flash drive. A 64 GB drive is an information storage device with a certain capacity, and whose information or information about what is irrelevant. I present a case for understanding quantum mechanics as about the structure of information, in a similar sense to which the theory of relativity is about the structure of spacetime.
