    Thanks for sharing! I was wondering about any news behind megaupload recently!
    EDIT: Holysh*t, Kim is a badass!

    What I find significant is that Dotcom seems to be surprised that statist agencies are targeting him, but he's clearly the exact opposite ideology. Glad to see his point of view being fully covered in this video though, definitely an important watch.

    Rumour has it that he is forming a political party in New Zealand for the elections later this year....

    No idea why people idolize him so much. Yeah he was badass back in the days, but now he just owns a normal file sharing site... Nothing illigal or against the authorities, so what's up?

    So you have to do something illegal or against authorities in order to be a badass? What about technological and political innovation? Or the fact that he was the top Call of Duty player in the world before his recent arrest?

    You gotta change your standards, kid.

    I hope he really gets into politics. It would make him the 1st politician who actually gives a fuck about people in the whole history of politics. Yes, I would bet my life that in the history of democratic elections, there wasn't ONE person who didn't just care about his own profits. Not ONE, no exception, nada.

    I mean, your wrong, but yea it'd be great to see him run. Thing is, he *DOES* have a history of criminal enterprising, haha.. how long would it really take before he became just like any other politician?

    No of course not you can also drink a cup of hot milk to be a badass KID.
    Seriously are you his lawyer that you are responding in such offensive manner as if I insulted your mother. Read a book then comment on other people's standards.
    What technological or political innovation has he done. He made millions on the back on others and people raised him on a pedestal as if he is Jesus.

    Btw since I expect a really stupid answer I won't bother answering you just so you know otherwise this will turn into a disput and I usually avoid having conflicts with kids. They start insulting people they don't know for no apperant reason. It's rather annoying.

    Heh, calm down. I call everyone kid, it's like saying dude or man where I'm from. Obviously it hit a nerve with you though...., maybe less coffee tomorrow? ;)

    I mean, there's a bunch of tech innovations, even cited in the documentary I posted. If you took the time to watch it before commenting on the guy you probably wouldn't have said what you said, unless you just don't like him cuz he's fat or something, I dunno, haha

    I apologise for my outburst in my previous post. I actually was a bit pissed off after just finishing a game of League of Legends. Was supposed to play 1-2 games to relax myself instead I got a team of the most toxic people you could ever get. Got my blood boiling and instead of laying it on them I did it on you for no apperant reason. Sorry again :)

    Btw it's not that I don't like him. I actually used to like him a lot, but nowadays in my eyes he has become a normal person(except for the millions). That was my point.
    And I do feel embarrased about not watching the whole video. Watched the first 6 minutes and then I started a game of LoL and didn't finish it afterwards :p. Will finish it now though.

    No worries, takes a big man ;)

    I actually was surprised at the stuff I learned from this video. I really just saw him the same way you did until now. I don't think he's jesus...I don't even think jesus is jesus., hehh... But he has brains, talent, money, power and the world's attention. He can use all that for the good of mankind and, so far, it looks like he's trying.

    I do have to say that he is rather charismatic. I guess I'm conflicted in my feelings towards him because on one side I like him and what he stands for, but on the other I'm wondering if he means what he says or he is just doing that because his back is against the wall.
    I suppose people tend to think of the worst in people especially when they have a lot of money.

    I'm really looking forward to the application or program or whatever is that will be competing with skype. I actually share quite a bit of personal information on skype often and I'd definitely love to have it encrypted. Btw I didn't really get it. Will it be a program that you install on your PC or it will be integrated in his site?
