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

Computer programming prodigy and "information activist" Aaron Swartz is profiled in this tragic, thought-provoking documentary. Swartz helped develop the RSS format and founded Reddit before taking his own life at 26. At the time he was about to stand trial for his "hacktivism." Director Brian Knappenberger previously helmed We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists, and his newest high-tech doc contemplates whether computer geniuses should use their skills for the monetary benefit of corporate America or for social good. 105 minutes Unrated.
