What is your question?
Question: Whom would you like to interview, and what would you ask?
Peter Rojas: Wow. It’s so many. Like there’s so many people like, you know, that . . . There are so many different people that it would be, like, interesting to sit down and talk with.

And you know whether it’s like being – talking about the environment with An Inconvenient Truth, or like talking about this breakdown in . . . in political discourse that we’re having with . . . when he wrote this book, “The Assault on Reason”, and how he talks about the Internet as a possible, you know, solution to these problems. And . . . and I’m sure like he’d have a lot more, you know, valuable things to say. But I would, you know . . . And him understanding, like, the value of like, you know, the Internet, and about, like, its value as a communications medium, and a medium for creation. I would love to like, you know . . . I would love to talk with him. I don’t know if I would ask him as many questions as I would try to convince him to run for president. But he would be someone that I would . . . I would love to engage with and talk with. Definitely like at the top of the list.
