Kim Dotcom Resigns from Mega Directorship

Kim Dotcom has left the Mega Directorship field wide open to anyone who has the will to handle the pressures that accompany such a demanding job. The cloud hosting storage service is for now without a driver at the steering wheel. Kim wants to concentrate on other areas and avenues. Kim had wanted some free time of his own in order to explore his political gambits and legal hassles. 

Furthermore, the man is dedicated to music and wants to debut a sound-worthy service in the times which are yet to come. Kim seems to be flying without a safety net and at this stage he needs all the luck in the world in order to make a successful career in uncharted territory. 

While Kim has always been on a tight schedule, at this stage in his life he needed a breather. That was one reason why he voluntarily stepped down from the Directorship of Mega. However, for some time now he wasn’t really doing much as Director, so it didn’t make an iota of difference. Kim’s political party is still in its initial stages and he will be running for office in New Zealand. As for the music service he plans on starting in the future, it remains pretty much under wraps.
