It's just adding 1 using binary numbers.

But the problem with puzzles like this is that there is no one answer.

Like I could have said that A(n) = [A(n-1)*A(n-2)] + (-1)^n*[A(n-2)]
Meaning multiply the previous 2 terms and alternate adding and subtracting the 2nd ago term. (where A(0) = 1 and A(1) = 10)
And then the next 3 numbers would be 1111, 111000, 123322111 :)

I think that works also... I was just looking for the next in line for binary count (101,110,111) but if you give me the next 3 beyond 10,000 in yours I will hand out bonus points.
Edit : cancel bonus points, just noticed I told subdork "all future puzzles".

I'd like to know the formula, I cant see how 1000 could come after 100

Perhaps, 1,10,11,100,111,1000 ...?

That's partially why I asked for 3 more #'s from pyro.. seems more like he's following a pattern than a formula.. adding by 4 in binary :?

I could see it more as (1,10,100,110,1000,1100,10000,etc)

Grr.. #'s starting to hurt my head... have to start giving logic problems and such.
