He seems to be a bit touchy about that subject:

Dembski says: Too bad that Freeman Dyson agrees with me and not with them.

This is utterly false. Nowhere in the referenced paper does Dyson say that zero-energy waves can impart information.

And nowhere in my quote do I say that zero-energy waves impart information — I say that they do in the limit. Let me suggest you read the appropriate chapters in Michael Spivak’s calculus book on limits. In the meantime, you’re out of here. –WmAD

Dembski proposing that someone else read up on limits...oh the irony.

Dembski's appeal to Dyson and limits was a bluff, and he aborted the discussion immediately when called on it.  I doubt that we'll see this argument from him again, but of course he won't admit that he was wrong.
