analog and digital circuitry

As far as I know there are two kinds of circuitries in electronics: analog, digital. I have a little bit of knowledge of analog circuitry (at least I understand the big picture). For instance, this circuit is analog one. Where does one use a digital circuit, like under what requirements? Can every circuit be made in two ways - i.e. in an analog way, or, in a digital way? Can you transform the linked circuit into a digital one?

Could you please provide me with some simple circuit which can be built both analog-ally and digitally in Multisim10 or Circuit Wizard format (otherwise, a simple image will also do)? Many, many thanks.

if the solution to your problem can be found in a simple 'yes' or a 'no', then you'll likely employ digital. If your solution is something in between, then you'd likely employ analog.
