Thank you to everyone who participated in our Trivia Thursday relaunch! The correct answer to the question was "C".
Just a bit more trivia: Edwin Catmull and James (Jim) Clark together actually developed what is perhaps the most popular technique for smoothly subdividing a 3D polygon mesh - the "Catmull-Clark" method.

We will post a new question next Thursday, we will look forward to your participation again :)
