In this paper I explore arguments concerning the appropriate analysis of Shannon information and quantum information. I will pay special attention to the physical status of information, especially the question of whether it can or should be considered a substance or not. I will also investigate the relations between analyses of Shannon information and quantum information and to what extent an analysis of Shannon information should inform an analysis of quantum information.
