over 4 years ago

Kim Dotcom is a German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur, currently residing in New Zealand. He is the founder of Megaupload and its associated websites, as well as Megaupload's successor site, Mega. 

What makes Kim controversial is the fact that the American government is actively trying to extradite him from New Zealand to the US. 

American comedian Tom Rhodes wanted to meet this enigmatic maverick of modern technology and show the human side of this public figure who is so often demonized in the mass media. 

Recorded on the last day that Tom was in the country for the New Zealand International Comedy Festival.

Kim & Tom are instantly united by their humor and a very honest open conversation about everything of relevance pertaining to Kim Dotcom is raised and discussed openly.

Sources of news clips can be found on YouTube. Steve Wozniak, co founder of Apple, gives an interview where he defends Kim's actions and ways of doing business.

Source of the interview clip with Tom Rhodes is from the program Nine to Noon hosted by Kathryn Ryan aired on Radio New Zealand . For full interview go to:
