Scott & Martin

Apologies for being so Martin-Gardner-centric lately, but one more Gardner post:

Gardner's autobiography makes brief mention of many of those Gardner encountered in his storied career, especially those who gained attention through his Scientific American columns, but one name I was surprised not to see mentioned was Scott Kim, who Gardner shined a light on for his creative and fascinating "ambigrams" (upside-down or backwards script writing). I don't know if there's any particular reason Kim got left out of the volume (unless I missed him somewhere), but at any rate, Scott is in some YouTube videos that briefly recount his connection to Gardner and to the "Gathering For Gardner" events he has participated in (these aren't new videos, so you may well have seen them before):

Also, Scott's own website of what-all he's into, is here:
