Analog and Digital are intertwined these days. Digital information is represented by series of electronic 1s and 0s, so that information is most current/modern but it is also unreal or fake. Analog information is represented in many ways—sight, touch, taste, smell, sound, etc.—and is, thus, old fashioned but it is also more real/accurate. Current usage is that Digital is modern/better and Analog is older/slower/less desirable.
