In this particular time zone, the billionth second after the epoch is
6:46:40p on Saturday, September 8:

bash-2.05$ date -d 'Sep 8 18:46:40'
Sat Sep  8 18:46:40 PDT 2001
bash-2.05$ date -d 'Sep 8 18:46:40' +%s

Unless I hear about some other event that's going to happen that day,
I plan to organize my own party to commemorate it.

The billion-second anniversary of Unix is relatively close to the
ten-year anniversary of Linux:
