Information processes and semiotic processes are complementary. While some aspects of physical reality can be convincingly described in terms of information--understood as an expression of entropy--the living conjures descriptions that integrate the meaning of change. Semiotics is the domain knowledge of representation and interpretation. It is against this conceptual framework that we discuss attempts at involving semiotics in the analysis and design of information systems, of human-computer interactions (HCI), and of programming languages.
