The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz

2014 NR

Aaron Swartz was a programming prodigy who helped shape the digital landscape we all use today. He helped develop the internet protocol RSS and was a co-founder of Reddit. Chronicling his pioneering efforts crusading for open access and free speech and the resulting legal nightmare and tragedy that ensued, The Internet's Own Boy is a dynamic and moving portrait of a brilliant tech millionaire who renounced the values of Silicon Valley startup culture and used technology to tirelessly fight for social justice, no matter what the cost.
