The second annual MegaBreakfast, run by the Institute of IT Professionals New Zealand (IITP), Auckland branch featured Kim Dotcom and Mathias Ortmann from Mega.

The Institute of IT Professionals NZ is the largest IT representative body in New Zealand and runs over 200 events each year across the country where experts and news makers are given the opportunity to give their perspective on current trends and events.

Speakers include leaders and experts from the IT sector, news makers, opinion leaders, ministers and senior officials from government, and others.

The June 26 event was the second time IITP CEO Paul Matthews had invited Mr Dotcom to speak to members at a MegaBreakfast. 

On the first occassion, the Megaupload founder was indisposed because of (since relaxed) bail conditions.

This time, he spoke to a sell-out crowd of 200.

Pretty impressed, can't wait for that second cable.

Nothing like telling New Zealand people how it is.

This whole affair brings great shame on the govt of NZ and their subservience to the US and Hollywood.
Dotcom should be wholly supported in his efforts.
Key's efforts to get legal support for spying on NZ citizens must also be resisted.

Well said, Liberte. Nobody has given govts the right to spy on their own citizens. It must be refuted at all costs.

Wake up, indeed. Kim Dotcom's credibility (and that of his colleague Mathias) has risen still further in my eyes. Well said. Looks like much derided "tin hat" brigade was right all along...

Somebody should remind the govts, especially of US and NZ, that they are servants of the people, not the other way around!

We the people have a Voice and Social Media is the choice and Politicians et al are servants of the people not the other way round.

Our taxes and our votes allow them to operate for the good of all and if it is not done then we need to vote them out next time around.
