11-11-(20)11

     11-11-11        Superstitions. Significances. Meanings.

     This millennium is bringing many unique numbered days—10-10-10 is history.  Today is 11-11-11. Coming is 12-12-12.

    So I shamelessly take information from http://www.timeanddate.com/date/11-11.html. The work on the significance of 11-11-11 is there. I excerpt part of their information here:

The numerical sequence of November 11 holds a special significance in the binary numeral system, which is the base-2 number system that represents numeric values using two symbols, 0 and 1. The date of November 11 has a binary number of 111110 where it has a decimal equivalent of 62 in the year 2010, and a binary number of 111111 with a decimal equivalent of 63 in the year 2011.

The number eleven has a special characteristic in mathematics where it is the sixth prime number. It contains some interesting peculiarities where the number eleven times itself equals a palindrome:

(2 digits) 11 x 11 = 121
(6 digits) 111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
(9 digits) 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321
