The Internet's own boy: the story of Aaron Swartz

The Internet's own boy tells the story of the American computer programmer, writer, and Internet activist Aaron Swartz, who hanged himself 18 moths ago.
Between his many activities we want to remember his collaboration with Lawrence Lessig for the organization Creative Commons, his involvement in the development of the web feed format RSS and his effort in Open Access movement.

The movie is now under Creative Commons and available in Italy too on the website Internet Archive.

"It features interviews with his family, friends and colleagues. The movie tells his story up to his eventual suicide after a legal battle, and explores the questions of access to information and civil liberties that drove his work."
