The 1000 frames a day thing is a representation that you as a photographer are spending less time thinking about what you're taking a photograph of (and how it will end up.) I know, I fall into the same basket: with digital it is very easy to activate the shutter 100s or more times a day with little regard to what is produced. Tricky situation encountered? Activate HDR and shoot a threesome to get over it.
In reality the same time is spent either way, either at the time of capture or via post processing. If one is indecisive during the shooting stage I will bet that the time they spend post processing is even longer and one of the allures of digital is that it allows a million post processing iterations. My style of shooting, even with digital 35mm gear is the same disciplined, methodical approach I had when shooting medium and large format film. I think people must trust their instinct more when shooting and not begin to lean towards allowing digital to save their shot. Now it does depend on what you're shooting I suppose but I've never shot anywhere near a 1000 shots a day shooting my subject matter, regardless of where I'm travelling.
