Martin Gardner on The Nature of Things

The Nature of Things / Martin Gardner from Wagner Brenner on Vimeo.

Watched this last night. Like many, I first discovered Martin Gardner while attempting to read Scientific American as a kid. This video reminds me why he was so interesting: math, juggling, puzzles, magic tricks and even computers. Check out the segments with John Conway (Mr. Life) or Bill Gosper (Mr. Lisp) or the “Dean of American Magicians” Jay Marshall. Martin Gardner was such a fascinating guy.
