Comment: What about other digital media?

(See in situ)

What about other digital media?

Are digital photos not images but ones and zeros?

Are digital books just ones and zeros?

Did you include ternary (not binary) computers in your assessment of "All of it"? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ternary_computer

BTW, I didn't make the mistake of saying all binary programs run on electrical circuits, because there have been wooden and metal mechanical computers as well.

Did you know that the first computers were... people.

They computed massive look-up tables for math using some of the same informational techniques employed by modern binary digital computers.

I don't think those human computers used the binary base very often (now I'm just trying to be funny).

The down votes given to my attempts to share information and insights regarding common misperceptions of programming suggest I am wasting my ones and zeros writing these comments on this matter, so intend to stop. :)
