Aaron Swartz was just twenty six years old when he took his own life in January of 2013, a victim many allege of the aggressive scare tactics and bullying of an out of touch federal government bent on making an example of the hacktivist and Reddit co-founder. The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014) paints a picture of a passionate young activist thrown under the bus by the very system he sought to change and investigates the circumstances of his arrest, prosecution, and eventual suicide. There will be a Q&A with Lisa Rein, coordinator of Aaron Swartz Day, and Seth Schoen of the EFF after the Friday, July 4th, 7PM showing.
