No matter what you think of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, you have to admit that he has a talent to rally the masses — and now, Dotcom wants to take that talent to the next level. Dotcom took to Twitter Tuesday to say that he is going to launch a political party simply called the Internet Party next week at his birthday party in Auckland, New Zealand, to which he has invited some 15,000 guests. Details about the program and candidates of the party are still scarce, but Dotcom has said that it wants to oppose government spying and advocate for better internet access. It sounds a bit like the Pirate Party, except that it’s run by someone who’s actually been accused of being a pirate.
