Jarek’s Anecdote

This reminded me of an anecdote the instructor of my second graphics class once shared.

Jarek Rossignac told us about his giving a talk during his tenure as a researcher at IBM. Jarek’s talk was about his research of subdivision of curves. After the talk, a gentleman struck up a conversation with him. That gentleman ended up being Pierre Bézier, the man who popularized the Bézier Curve.
