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



I was well aware of Aaron long before the news broke of his untimely death. When I heard the news, I happened to be surrounded by dozens of people who knew Aaron personally. Through their stories it became immediately clear how many diverse corners of the internet Aaron's work touched. A few days into the conference I started recording people’s memories of him on camera, and weeks later I knew I had to go deeper to fully understand what caused such an accomplished and inspired person to take his own life. As became obvious in "We Are Legion" many internet activists are so frustrated with existing systems that they consider them unfixable. But Aaron didn’t fit into this category. Countless friends describe him as someone who wanted to work within the system, to “hack” or use new tools to fix problems in our society – everything from internet freedoms to health care. His story is a poignant chronology of internet history, and forces us to take a hard look at how we understand access to information moving forward.

Thank the consistently excellent Matt Taibbi for keeping his eye on the ball. While most of the blogosphere asks about Bradley Manning's character, he reminds us that that we're talking about killing civilians and journalists and children, and the public's right to know, and factoids like "he was singing along to lady Gaga while he downloaded information" are completely irrelevant to the families who lost loved ones.

The also awesome Chris Hedges is also eminently worth reading on the subject. "Manning, in a just society, would be a prosecution witness against war criminals. Those who committed these crimes should be facing prison. But we do not live in a just society."
