There are many industries that have over the last 25 years that have gone from being primarily anaologue to currently being fundamentally digital.  Information based companies hardly rely on paper forms or reports to help them operate.  The art of analogue photography is a quickly vanishing discipline.  With the invention of the 3D printers, even the process of physically replicating any object, has now to a certain degree been digitized.
