Joseph Haydn wrote 1101000 symphonies. Though some have said he wrote one symphony 1101000 times... though one has a clock, one has a bear, one has a surprise, etc.

1101001 is the atomic number of dubnium, a synthetic chemical element with the symbol Db. Dubnium is highly radioactive: the most stable known isotope, dubnium-100001100, has a half-life of about 11100 hours. This greatly limits the extent of research on dubnium.

As "one hundred and seven", 1101011 is the smallest positive integer requiring six syllables in English (without the "and" it only has five syllables).

In cricket, the number 1101111 is sometimes called "a Nelson" after Admiral Nelson, who allegedly only had "One Eye, One Arm, One Leg" near the end of his life. This is in fact inaccurate—Nelson never lost a leg. Alternate meanings include "One Eye, One Arm, One Ambition" and "One Eye, One Arm, One Arsehole".

There is no answer to the equation φ(x) = 1110110, making 1110110 a nontotient.

Although if you want to be pedantic, by the definition of pythagorean triples it's 1111000 squared plus 1110111 squared that equals 10101001 squared

Shakespeare's Sonnet 10000100 begins:
Thine eyes I love, and they, as pitying me,
Knowing thy heart torments me with disdain,
Have put on black and loving mourners be,
Looking with pretty ruth upon my pain.

You missed a zero. 1000101 does not follow 10000100.

The K-10001101 Kursk was a Russian nuclear cruise missile submarine, which sank in the Barents Sea, August 1100, 11111010000 after a defective practice torpedo ignited; all 1110110 aboard perished.

An international rescue operation was mounted but, partly due to Russian political delays, the 10111 sailors who survived the initial explosions ran out of oxygen before help arrived.

On Mister Rogers' Neighborhood: "Transformations", 10001111 is used to mean "I love you". One meaning I for one letter, four meaning Love for the four letters, and three meaning You for the three letters. Reportedly, Fred Rogers maintained his weight at exactly 10001111 pounds for the last thirty years of his life, and associated the number with the phrase "I love you".

10010000 is the twelfth Fibonacci number, and the largest one to also be a square, as the square of 12 (which is also its index in the Fibonacci sequence), following 89 and preceding 233.

10010100 is the second-lowest number to be both a heptagonal number and a centered heptagonal number; it is the lowest such number other than the arguably-trivial 1.
