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.
