Sci-Fi asks, "What if..."
"In 2007, the first communist party-approved science fiction and fantasy convention in Chinese history was held in China. Sci-Fi had been disapproved of for a long time but something changed their minds.
The Chinese were brilliant at making things if other people brought them the plans. But they did not innovate and they did not invent. They did not imagine. So they sent a delegation to the US, to Apple, to Microsoft, to Google, and they asked the people there who were inventing the future about themselves. And they found that all of them had read science fiction when they were boys or girls."
