He is the founder of the file-sharing site, <a href="">Megaupload</a>, as well as his much discussed current project, <a href="">Mega</a>. Dotcom will be interviewed at SXSW via Skype in a convergent talk titled, <a href="">Kim Dotcom Speaks! A Skype Panel</a>, by WIRED Contributing Editor <a href="">Charles Graeber</a> at Dell Hall at the Long Center on Monday, March 11 at 3:30pm. Graeber, author of the upcoming book, <em><a href="">The Good Nurse</a></em>, spent several weeks with Dotcom and is currently writing a book about the man who has come to symbolize the issue of privacy, piracy, and our digital future. In January of this year, Dotcom launched a new project / website, called Mega, which opened up to the public exactly one year after Megaupload was shut down. Mega is a cloud storage service that uses encryption to protect users from government or third party "spies" from invading users' privacy.
