it’s not just on or off

I linked to a post on (the teeming void) the other day, and I can’t get a particular phrase out of my head:

“…the digital is just the analog operating within certain tolerances or threshholds.”

It seems to resonate and hint at momentous meaning that I can’t quite grasp. I don’t understand his first link to Kirschenbaum, but I get his second reference to Kirschenbaum and the point about data’s illusion of immateriality. I’m sure this could have a deep impact on my current research on contemporary digital art.
