Geek knitting redux

The winter Knitty is up, and I have
fallen madly in love with this binary code scarf pattern, which I’ve
decided will be one of my next large projects. And yes, I have every
intention of encoding an actual message into the scarf. I found a handy little
Unicode-to-binary tool that can convert a
short message into ones and zeroes; now the only thing to decide is:
What should the scarf say, in roughly 120 characters?

Right now, I’m considering S. R.
Ranganathan’s Five Laws of Library Science, which would officially make
this the geekiest knitting project in the history of the universe. But
I’m also thinking of Latin mottoes, Oscar Wilde aphorisms, memorable
Buffy and Firefly quotes, and first lines of favorite poems. If all
else fails, I could always put "Hello World" on it about 10 times. So: any suggestions?

And also: God bless geeky knitters, every one.

    Have you seen the Double-Helix scarf? Pattern is in Intereweave Knits magazine from a couple of years ago.

    I don’t think I have — not that one, at least. Was it anything like this one?
