 Feb 2 comment Trace of a matrix times outer product Thanks for your answer so far. Is there an intuitive explanation of why someone would prefer to write the first expression? Does it reveal some mathematical structure? The second one seems clearer to me.

Interesting. Note that the "information contribution" is often called the "surprisal" or "self-information". Aug 1 answered What are the practical uses of $e$?
