October 16 Day 222: How Did I Not Know About This?

Starting tomorrow there are three talks a day for 7 days to celebrate Martin Gardner’s legacy. The people they have lined-up are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. And it’s all free. You do not have to be a mathematician to enjoy them—just curious and enjoy puzzles. Oh snap—that really means you are a mathematician. For more information visit the website G4G’s Celebration of Mind 2020.

Let me include the program here:
