Creating Impact Content: How to Enhance the Media’s Contribution to Positive Social Change?
When you drive in Moscow, for example, you see these billboards vying with each other to get you to buy a dog or cat from some breeder.

I think that to a large degree, we should be looking at the government doing something to support this idea, in the way that space exploration was supported in the past, or in the way physics was in the 1960s. There needs to be a dream which can be sold around the world by an Elon Musk-type figure. <…> We need similar, exciting projects and dreams. <…> In essence, a cult of sorts needs to be built around IT, one which is both popular and accessible,
