After you watch the Max Maven piece, click on "Gathering for Gardner" below the video to go to their page of youtube videos. There are many talks from not only the 12th conference in 2016, but also the 11th in 2014 (including one of some doofus talking about Theodore Deland).

Ones of possible interest to this forum include Jason England on cheating devices, Adam Rubin on his most recent book, Alex Bellos on elliptical pool tables, Gabe Fajuri on things he sells at auction, Dana Richards on the things Martin Gardner wrote as a juvenile, and things he wrote as an adult for juveniles, Charles Sonenshein on a Milbourne Christopher rope trick, Lennart Green on magic squares, and Gary Foshee's harmonic pendulum.

It was great seeing your talk on Theo Deland, Bill!

I really hope the book comes out some time this year.

I have spoken a lot about The Gilbreath Principle in this thread.

Well - here is an important update. Tomas Blomberg has extended this principle with an idea called Interlocked Gilbreath. You can find it in his book called Blomberg Laboratories. It is a great book and his work on this principle is pretty special. He has pushed it further than anyone else I have seen.

Bill, Enjoyed your talk on Deland.
You look different than what I had imagined.
For some reason, when reading your posts, I have always envisioned you as looking like Ed Asner ...

I'm not quite sure how to take that . . .
(but I do hate spunk)


When I was younger, I used to get accused of looking like Ernie from "My Three Sons". Now, occasionally (and I don't get this and can't figure out why) people will tell me I look like Stephen King. In the past 5 years, I've had 3 or 4 random strangers walk up to me and tell me that.

Some more videos have just been added. They include some short ones featuring impromptu tricks from Gardner's Encyclopedia by Mark Mitton, Dan Garrett, and Martin Gardner's son James.

(and speaking of Ed Asner, he has come up on the forum before)
