Digital or Analog?

I always thought there were two types of people in this world...Journey fans...and liars. Well, my good friend Chris from jacksnupple believes I'm wrong. He may be on to something. Chris believes folks are classified into two different categories: ANALOG or DIGITAL


In a blog titled Secrets Chris claims to be an uber-digital.
I am digital. I am Bobby Friggin' Digital. I'm borderline nerding out most of the time. You should see me in an Apple retail store–my geek meter peaks.

The blog is pretty funny and it made me think? Am I a digital or an analog? Well I know for a fact I'm no analog. That was easy...or was it? In today's world, everyone is labeled and then sub-labeled...and sometimes even sub-sub-labeled. Long gone are the days of being a a simple something! It is impossible to be just a Democrat, or Republican. You're a leftist, or conservative. These labels even reach into religion and nationalities. Are you a Southern Baptist or a light skinned brother?
With this new found knowledge of being either analog or digital...I asked myself: Are there different levels of classification within these two categories? I know I'm not a analog, but I'm not sure if I'm a digital. Maybe digital-lite. Possibly, I'm a Hack Hag...totally analog, but I hang around a bunch of digitals, because I feel safe around them. I have a lot of friends who are totally digital. Maybe I'm a closet digital? How do I tell my parents I'm a digital? Is it best not to come out of the closet? I surround myself with digitals and can dork out with the best of them, but when in mixed company I'll claim I really don't know what all this 1 and 0 stuff is all about. I'll never admit openly I know the secrets, however, know most of them, or at least I know who does!

So...ARE YOU AN ANALOG OR A DIGITAL?

Journey Rocks!!!! I have enough trouble responding to your blog, much less figuring out if I am analog or digital.

Chris-

That isn't as much against you as it is with you.

Uncle Jim and Greta-

Chris Brewer said...

Chris Brewer-
I miss Journey Fridays. It's not the same here at a radio station.

Analog

My best guess after consulting Websters Dictionary or http://www.m-w.com/

I'd like to think Analog has some Digital traits...without being geeky or easily distracted :-)

pbohall said...

Ok...I didn't mean ALL digital people are geeky or easily distracted. Both Digital & Analog evolve while keeping time. After reading the definitions - Analog makes the most sense...because it has digits (fingers & toes) and it relates to other living things (animals & plants.)

Prima-

You can be digital and granola at the same time... :)

Prima said...

Good one - and also true to my heart :-) P-

Are you allowed to tell us what kinds of stories you're covering in the news over there?

Just finished watching "The Quiet American." Anyhow...despite Brendan Frazier being a bad actor in the movie...it made me think about combat journalism and what stories you might be covering.

Can anyone recommend the top Script Deployment program for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: [url=http://www.n-able.com] N-able N-central software remote access
[/url] ? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
