Watched The Internet's Own Boy: the story of Aaron Swartz this evening. A powerful, moving and sad documentary. I knew of his involvement in e.g. Reddit but I'd missed his important contributions to RSS, Creative Commons and other things. We've lost a visionary, a genius, and one of the foundational figures in Internet society, with an impact and influence in so many areas. So sad.

If you care about technology / the Internet, freedom, democracy, information and learning then this film deserves your urgent attention. Do not miss it.

The director Brian Knappenberger Skyped in for a Q&A after the screening and was generous enough to answer one of my questions. A very thoughtful and impressive guy. I'm keen to see his previous work, We Are Legion, now.

Incidentally, if you are into similar things then I also recommend Terms & Conditions May Apply; and Downloaded, the story of Napster.

FWIW, the Aaron Swartz film is available under CC license for download, but it is also coming to (no doubt a limited number of) cinemas in the UK this weekend, so try to get to see it.

We really love the Albert, it is our local pub. The food is always really good, there's a reasonable range of ales on offer, and they are very "social" online with their Facebook and Twitter presences - lots of offers and events. Summer barbecues are excellent! We also enjoy the comedy and other events that they put on. Service is friendly and helpful. Big fans :-)
