Why is it Nerd New Year on 11/11/11? We call it #nerdnewyear because we only hit the binary trifecta once a century. That is, once in our lifetimes !!!

Let's celebrate 11/11/11 with a #nerdnewyear street party to raise money for 11 local charities!

More details about this event are at NerdNewYear.com ...

Can we get a lot of RSVPs? That depends on all of us!!

Let's show the world that City of Redwood knows how to party!

106 miles is hosting this event with Hackers and Founders, but we are open to all, and expect to see members of Women 2.0 and Churchill Club and SVNewTech and Startup Digest attending, too.

And actually, it's pretty cool. We're closing the 2600 block of Broadway for a street party starting at 3pm on 11/11/11, running till midnite, but watch out when the sun goes down!

That's right: we have been granted the street closure TILL MIDNITE, and will be rocking the street until the Nerd New Year count down at 11:11pm, when our count down clock strikes NEW YEAR!

There will be a stage on the street with several great bands, fun entertainment from street performers, face painters, a robot army, magicians, stilt walkers, and fire dancers.

Delicious food, beer, and wine will be available on the street from 3pm to 11pm, with the proceeds going to charity, and of course you can get even more at The Redwood City Underground and other local businesses.

There will also be a raffle with fabulous prizes including SAN JOSE SHARKS AND SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS AUTOGRAPHED STUFF, and proceeds will go to 11 charities. Awwww yeah!!

We realize a day-long celebration may not be what you have time for, so 106ers are encouraged to come to The Underground at 2650 Broadway 6-9pm to toast and network.

This should be a lot of fun.

Bring a friend !!! Heck, bring 10, so you go to 11!

Big thank you to Kelli Townsend for designing our logo!

Wonder if @nerdnewyear is still going on or if the rain chased everyone else too. Most of the booths were packed up by the time I left.

What was the big deal with 11/11/11? It wasn't the biggest binary year. Did people forget it was 2011? #NerdNewYear on.mash.to/vIxQxS
