From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron's story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (Must Watch Documentary 2014)
Published on Nov 8, 2017
If you enjoyed the video,dont forget to leave a like and share it with your friends. SUBSCRIBE for more awesome Documentaries!!! STORYLINE: Opening with the news of Internet "hacktivist" Aaron Swartz's untimely death at the age of 26, "The Internet's Own Boy" traces the rise and fall of a tech industry prodigy. Interviews with his friends and loved ones paint a portrait of Swartz as a martyr of freedom of information and hail his fight for the public's right to access tax-funded academic and scientific research, culminating in a personally devastating two-year Federal lawsuit. Having developed RSS technology at the age of fourteen Swartz was embraced by tech leaders at the top of their fields including Cory Doctorow and Creative Commons founder Lawrence Lessig. Affable and baby-faced, Swartz was a frequent presenter at conferences and participated in academic pursuits at top-level universities throughout his teenage years. He established himself as a force to be reckoned with as co-founder of Reddit, one of the largest social media and news aggregator sites online to this day. Despite a profitable job offer at Conde Nast, Swartz rejected corporate culture in favor of pursuing a democratic Internet in the interest of information sharing over profit. An avid researcher who had previously accessed otherwise private databases, Swartz, acting "in the grand tradition of civil disobedience to declare... opposition to this private theft of public culture" used MIT computers to access tax-funded research that would otherwise be held privately by for-profit publishers, an incident many viewers may remember from national headlines just a few year ago. Though neither MIT nor the digital repository Swartz accessed pressed charges, a US Attorney stepped in and filed a 13-count felony charge against Swartz, threatening him with over $1 million in fines and up to 35 years of jail time. The case drew unwanted media attention to Swartz, skewing him as a hacker and pirate instead of a liberator of information and defender of civil liberties. The Swartz we meet through the film, however, is an admirable, kind-hearted young man adored by his friends, family and collaborators. Passionate about addressing societal problems and deeply influenced by World Wide Web founder Tim Berners-Lee, who chose to share the Web freely instead of for-profit, the film paints Swartz as a maligned activist, wrongly presented to the public as a criminal for his efforts to release a information to the general population. Despite the defense of his peers, these events launched Swartz into a two-year long downward spiral of withdrawal and depression. The film highlights the impact technology has on society's access to information, the amount of control for-profit entities and the government dictate over this access, and ultimately questions whether Swartz's efforts proved him to be defeated or victorious at the end of his life, though his impact on the open access movement is undeniable either way.   Category Entertainment

Aaron Swartz Excerpts

Published on Jan 21, 2013
These excerpts are part of the documentary War for the Web (warfortheweb.com). We met Aaron Swartz in spring of 2012 at the Freedom 2 Connect conference (freedom-to-connect.net/) in Washington D.C. As one of the keynote speakers, he told his story about how he and a group of passionate Internet users rose up against a Goliath of government and corporate interests to defeat the infamous SOPA/PIPA bill. (You can watch his full speech here: youtube.com/watch?v=Fgh2dFngFsg) With calm understated confidence, Aaron reminded all of us of the power we have within ourselves to effect change in the system. After his speech, we approached Aaron to ask him if he would be willing to share his thoughts with us in our documentary about past, present and endangered future of the Internet. Like he was with so many others, Aaron was incredibly open and generous with his time. He gave us our first official interview for our film, and we know that "War for the Web" will be that much better because of his wisdom and knowledge. We share with you some unedited excerpts of Aaron's insights, in which he discusses growing up in the age of the Internet, the importance of the freedom of speech and access to information, and how we as individuals are responsible for the future of the Internet. Rest in Peace, Aaron. J.

Cory Doctorow: Aaron Swartz and Hacktivism

Published on Jul 11, 2013
At the age of three, he taught himself how to read. At the age of 14 he helped developed RSS, the innovation that allows websites to gather content from other sites. From there, he joined Creative Commons, co-founded Reddit, and founded DemandProgress.org. Sadly, in early 2012, Aaron Swartz took his own life after facing upwards of 35 years in a federal penitentiary for downloading millions of files from JSTOR, an online journal storage archive. He was 26 years old. Cory Doctorow, a friend of Aaron's, sits down with Steve Paikin to talk about the life, work, and hopes of Aaron Swartz, and the bigger battle that his death underscores: those that see the potential of a free and open internet to transform society for the better and those that seek to regulate it.

Aaron Swartz - On Peer To Peer, Digital Rights Management and Web 2.0

Published on Feb 24, 2013
http://q.gs/3GggL San Francisco, April 2007 // Categories: DRM, Decentralization, Web2.0 From its inception in 1999, Napster was pursued by the music industry who succeeded in shutting it down. By doing so, they drove users towards decentralized methods of sharing with no centralized point of weakness. This was made possible network architecture or the so-called 'end-to-end principle'. Swartz outlines how thereafter industry tried other approaches such as digital rights management, which collided with the essential nature of computers as copying machines, and legal threats. While none of these strategies succeeded in stopping sharing, they have impeded the further development of p2p technologies (ion this see also Fred von Lohmann's interview). Arguably these events have encouraged a shift towards web 2.0 sites where users hand over control of their work to centralized sites based on advertising models. Could this trend be reversed in the future? Category Nonprofits
