If there were any doubts that Sunday’s NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers is the “Nerd Bowl,” this should put them to rest.
In a city filled with “12th Man” flags, Seattle-based tech company ExtraHop took a much more technical approach last night by putting the numbers “00001100” — the binary representation of the number twelve — in the windows of its downtown headquarters.
The project was the brainchild of Bhushan Khanal, ExtraHop’s director of engineering, assembled by several of the company’s employees on Thursday afternoon.
ExtraHop says the display is its own geeky way of showing its support for the Seahawks and the tech-savvy city the team calls home.
Go Geeks! (And Go Hawks!)
