If there's one thing former Megaupload owner Kim Dotcom knows how to do, it's grabbing attention. When his new service, simply called "Mega", embraces the internet on January 20 next year, it'll be with a "press conference like no other" at his massive mansion in New Zealand.
Via Twitter, Kim Dotcom invited media to sign-up for the launch using the Mega website:
Members of the media who like to be at the press conference of the EPIC Mega launch at the Dotcom Mansion pls register: http://t.co/XYDI2G0C

He has yet to go into in detail about what to expect (from the conference or Mega itself), though it'll be a conference "like no other" as Dotcom "can't do anything small".
In the same batch of tweets, Dotcom mentioned that "selected" media will have a chance to try the service out 48 hours before its general release. I'm sure those previews will be exceptionally exciting.
The last time Dotcom was in the news, he claimed NZ would enjoy free broadband (though "heavily subsidies" would be a better description"), thanks to the planned resurrection of the stalled Pacific Fibre project.
