New Zealand: Switzerland for Data

Excellent post on how NZ can take the advantage of our location and Mr. KimDotCom’s case to position ourselves in global stage.  Do you want to host your data in NYC where Hurricane just brought so many websites down, or do you want to get your data in the land of middle earth?

We would need to become the neutral ground, the data Switzerland if we’re to gain their trust. Publicly adhered to rules regarding data collection and retention. Privacy built in, access only under the strictest conditions.
