The Internet's Own Boy

This is a movie about Aaron Swartz, who believed the world knowledge should be free and publicly accessibly by everyone.

  • He was the co-founder of Reddit and many other orgs.
  • He was greatly involved on trying to avoid SOPA law to pass. Succeeds.
  • Downloaded tons of papers and research from a website using MIT’s network
  • The US government had a big case against him but they didn’t provide information/evidence. It didn’t make sense…
  • It’s a really big loss. He just wanted to make the world a better place.
