Departures Podcast with Kim Dotcom

In just a few short months, the global coronavirus crisis has already shown its power to reshape the world, as many professionals shift to working from home (some permanently), and as we watch how technology plays a larger and larger role in our day to day lives.

One party that benefits greatly from this trend? The global intelligence community, says my friend and client Kim Dotcom, who knows a little something about being spied on.

I was pleased to have the chance to catch up with Kim on this episode of Departures, as he brings a very unique perspective of someone who not only has a deep understanding of future technology trends, but has also meticulously studied the COVID-19 data as an observer – and what he has to say will not likely reduce your stress levels, I’m afraid.

In our discussion, we look at the scenarios for the endgame of his battle against extradition from New Zealand, how 5G, artificial intelligence, and quantum computing will change our lives (if we don’t mess it all up beforehand), and his view on the privacy debate in this age of ever-expanding surveillance powers.
