The number 2016 is 11111100000 in binary. Years whose binary representations are just 1s followed by 0s have been rare for a thousand years, but we’re going to get more and more in the next few decades:

2016 11111100000
2032 11111110000
2040 11111111000
2044 11111111100
2046 11111111110
2047 11111111111
2048 100000000000

And then no more until the 31st century. So enjoy them while they last!
