I think the link between IT and ID goes quite deep. The ID set seem obsessed with the digital world as a model for life and indeed the universe. The vast majority of Dembski's examples are digital: bit strings, coin tosses, hands of playing cards. Then it is typically followed by a fuzzy bit that amounts to: "and real life is the same but on a larger scale". It even extends to digitising reality when calculating the Universal Probability Bound.

Also there is a recurrent theme on UD and elsewhere on the lines of "we have discovered that biology is information, so biologists don't understand it and will have to give way to software engineers and mathematicians (who, of course, will see that the biologists have all been wrong about evolution)". The analogy between a DNA sequence and a programme is stretched to breaking point and beyond.
