Digital or Analog

After quite a while I have again setup my old, solid metal animation disk in my office. I love working on this disk to draw or animate. I have gotten so used to it that I retrofitted the Cintiq onto my original animation desk. I don't think there really is a question whether to work digital or analog in traditional animation. I prefer paper, but only if somebody else scans the work.
Besides that, the work has to speak for itself no matter the medium used.
Teaching animation I have to say, that I do appreciate the digital work-flow. It somehow helps the students not to worry about the drawings only, but first about the movement.
