In the current sense of the word, most people would not observe physical printed literature, such as poetry, as “digital.” Computerized media contains a finite amount of data. For example, a text file containing a poem represents the characters in that poem in a finite amount of ASCII binary. Similarly, according to Lev Manovich in The Language of New Media, “Human language is discrete on most scales: We speak in sentences; a sentence is made from words; a word consists of morphemes and so on. (3)” On both mediums, computerized and print both could be thought of as digital because both may be broken down to finite data. While this might not hold true for a painting versus a digital photograph of a painting, it remain consistent for literature or film. More importantly, both types of media rely on pointing. In Every digital device is really an analogical device, Benjamin Peters remarks “Only by indexing our counting to real world objects do we embody our computational abstractions…By pointing or orienting ourselves to different objects, our digits have long manipulated the world around us. (17) ” They both require these external references to objects and feelings in order to be understood. Without referencing the external, both digital and print would be equally as useless. When we examine the similarities both digital and physical printed media seem more similar than opposite.
