a binary kind of day

In about seven minutes (sorry I can't be more precise) a digital readout of the date and time will show:

10/10/10 10:10:10

This is the kind of day beloved by computer geeks, digital-type thinkers, those who tend to think of everything as dichotomies, physicists who study matter and anti-matter, and fraternal twins.

Even I think it's kind of cool, and I'm an analog kind of guy.

Of course, we'll be treated to a similar temporal circumstance next year, and again in 2012. After that we'll have to wait nearly a century.
