There are two known apparently massless fields in nature, the photon and the graviton. Interestingly, their massless nature in each case leads to similar infrared catastrophes for quantum electrodynamics and perturbative quantum gravity. In this talk, I will review some quantum information theoretic issues stemming from the copious production of soft photons and soft gravitons in elementary particle interactions.
