Important Definitions

Digital refers to all things binary and the disruption facing almost every industry today. At a basic level, the term refers to things expressed in discrete numerical form, especially data, now characterized by the widespread use of networked computers and electronic devices. Rubicon is a river in northern Italy that river flows from the Apennine Mountains to the Adriatic Sea. "Crossing the Rubicon" is a popular idiom meaning to pass a point of no return, referring to Caesar's crossing of the river, which was considered an act of war.
