TED Talk Thursday – Scott Kim: The art of puzzles

According to TED.com: “At the 2008 EG conference, famed puzzle designer Scott Kim takes us inside the puzzle-maker’s frame of mind. Sampling his career’s work, he introduces a few of the most popular types, and shares the fascinations that inspired some of his best.”

“Over his 20-year career as a designer of visual puzzles, Scott Kim has created hundreds of puzzles for magazines, and thousands for computer games. His puzzles have appeared inside video games such as Obsidian, in browser games like Bejeweled, and in his regular monthly column, The Boggler, in Discover Magazine.”


For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com: “TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”
