Friday News Nov 17: Weekly Socials, G4G Tributes

  • G4G Weekly Socials

    Our weekly Socials are held on Sunday at 12 noon Atlanta time (check the time for you here).

    We are using the Zoom Meeting platform here (not Zoom Webinar as we do for our monthly CoM presentations on the 21st). So for these Sundays socials we will all be able to see each other.

    Upcoming Sessions:

    “Martin Gardner wrote about Hex, the connection game invented by Piet Hein and John Nash in 1957! Hex has many mathematical connections, some very surprising! We will go through his article and connected material.”

    We welcome theme suggestions for the G4G Weekend Socials. Would YOU like to lead such a social, perhaps with a fresh look at a favorite Martin Gardner column (or book)? All information can be found here.
  • November Virtual Celebration of Mind (CoM)

    This Tuesday November 21, at 12 noon ET (16:00 UTC) Atlanta Local Time, we return for another Virtual Celebration of mind. The title of this month’s presentation is “The maths of simple two-player games” by Peter Rowlett. This presentation will happen on Zoom Webinar. We’ll also meet in another Zoom Room, where everyone will be able to see each other, right after this presentation.

  • G4G Community

    We are excited to announce that Matt Baker, long time G4G community member will be appearing on the television show Penn & Teller: Fool Us! The show will air Friday evening 12/1 on the CW network, and then will be available to stream on the CW website starting Dec. 2. More here.

  • G4G Tributes

    We continue to update and maintain multiple tribute pages. In this we hope to honour and remember the many who have made the G4G community the remarkable group it is. As well as to inspire and connect those who build on the shoulders of these giants. We welcome and encourage any contribution to these tributes. To share your memories or anecdotes, please email us,
