In this talk I will weigh a number of distinct approaches one might take to answering the question ‘What is quantum information?’ and will urge the claims of my own---somewhat deflationary, ontologically---approach to this question (Timpson 2013). One aspect which is interesting in weighing putative answers to this question is the extent to which the answer offered is fruitful and clarificatory of other concerns one might have.
