Sure, 2011 is ripe with special dates; SF Beer Week is Feb 11—20, Cowboys & Aliens opens July 29, and the whole year itself has been designated The Int’l Year of Chemistry. But what I’m most excited about are the numbers.

It’s gonna be a great year so be sure to stay on top of the Ümlaut on Facebook and Twitter.
