On 'digital'

Lately the concept ‘digital’ has been widely exploited to convey a generic message of ‘novel’: we should not fall in this trap.

Moreover, ‘digital’ does not mean ‘discrete’ (a clock whose hands can assume only discrete positions is analog), nor ‘based on electronics’ (several electronic devices are analog), nor ‘related to computer-based online communication’ (digital computers were digital before the Internet).
