It looks pretty random, but there are too few repeated consecutive digits: only three 77 and one 22. I give up, what is the pattern?
Just answering so I don't miss the answer

If you consider just the first 4 digits (0,1,2,3), then even digits occur 10 times each, odd digits 5 time each. However this pattern does not continue (4 and 8 also occur 5 times, but are even).
The longest gap between repeats is 24 between 2 '8's.
'6' and '4' see gaps of 23.
'6' is the least frequent digit, 7 is the most frequent (3 times as frequent)
Taken as a decimal integer the factors less than 100 are
2,2,3,3,23,23
Yet the whole number is not a perfect square.
My conclusion is that this is probably the "least uninteresting number" - very interesting....
