Who came up with these and how did they figure that they were going to mean what they mean? They can get pretty complicated.

Are you talking about 1's and 0's of computer language? They could easily have made it 2's and 3's and it still be the same.

Yes, those are called binary numbers. I agree that's why I'm wondering how they came up with using 1's and 0's and not like a's and b's or something else? How did they decide what was going to mean what?
