The Internet’s Own Boy — Aaron Swartz [1Hr 45 Mins]

×

Beautiful & inspiring documentary about the one man that was so driven to provide free and open access of information to the masses. Right from the age of 14, Aaron invented tools and services that leapfrogged the development of the internet. Very few people we meet these days have the conviction and dedication to follow what they truly believe in. Aaron Swartz was one such luminary — who would have accelerated development and access of the internet leaps and bounds, were he alive today. The last 15 mins of this documentary are heart clinching. I’m inspired by his short life.

Highly recommended watch.
