Martin Gardner!!!!

Every 2 years there is a Gathering For Gardner. It's a convention that brings together people interested in puzzles, recreational mathematics, and magic. The next one will be in March 2010. Naturally, I'll be attending and covering the event for Games Magazine.

My favorite Martin Gardner puzzle is the one about the 5 men on an island gathering coconuts.

  1. Last Wednesday Martin turned 95!! Happy Birthday Martin!! This just shows how recreational math keeps one young! I phoned Martin a few years ago and his mind seemed just as sharp as ever. He only complained about the loss of his filing system, which has been shipped off to a library at Stanford.
