Published on

Analog and digital are two techniques for compressing information, two nodes on the information compression superhighway. using frequency and amplitude as levers for modulating information onto electromagnetic spectrum. As analog has progressed to digital, so too could there be several subsequent phases of information compression algorithms that are denser than digital.
