Our reporter Glenn Le Santo stood up on stage at this year's #LeWeb to ask a question of the French Minister of the Digital Economy - and ended up on stage.

Fleur Pellerin: "I wish for France to be the leader of big data and the internet of things in ten years time"

Le Santo told the minister that he was her 'fairy godmother' and had the power to grant her a wish. "What would you like the French startup scene to look like in ten years time, it's a wish so ask for anything!"

"I wish for the French startup scene to be the leader of big data and the internet of things in ten years time!" replied the Minister.
