The Internet’s Own Boy

The Internet’s Own Boy is a compelling documentary about the life and impact of Aaron Swartz on our society in his quest for complete open access. The documentary introduces us to mind of Aaron Swartz and how he became tech savvy at an early age. It talks about how he was an extremely intelligent person and a very innovative thinker. This film presents Aaron’s view on the matter of open access and how keeping information from the public only hinders society. While the documentary was very good, my one issue with it was that we never heard the prosecutors side since they did not want to participate in the film. This makes the film biased in way. While Aaron’s intentions were good, he did still break the law and therefore had to be punished. Overall it was a very good film and I would recommend it.
