Abstract In computer science and for society in general, there is a tendency to overlook number bases beyond decimal, binary, and hexadecimal. Our mathematical ancestors used the numbers 12, 60, and 360 to organize time and angular measure. This article describes a method of examining number bases at a glance for possible incorporation in information-age ideas. The number-theoretical relationships of digits to number bases serve as a guide toward selection of numbers for such uses.
