Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom received a visit from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak while he was in the country last month.
Mr Wozniak was in New Zealand in May to present his seminar, ‘The Apple Story’.
The pair’s meeting had not been revealed until Kim Dotcom this week tweeted a photo of himself with Mr Wozniak.
Dotcom is currently embroiled in legal proceedings following a police raid on his Coatesville mansion in January. He is wanted for extradition by US prosecutors, who allege he is responsible for copyright violations, money laundering and fraud.
He describes Mr Wozniak as a “great guy”.
Mr Wozniak is a supporter of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an non-profit organisation that defends free speech, privacy and consumer rights.
EFF has been involved in helping to return Megaupload files that were lost by users when the site was closed down by US authorities.
“EFF is helping to give Mega users their files back. Thanks Woz & EFF,” Dotcom tweeted yesterday.
