The Internet’s Own Boy: An Urgent Heartbreaker

“Moving and maddening in almost equal measure.”

How are social justice and the economics of information access intertwined?

Meet us in the Library Auditorium on Tuesday, Oct 25 from 6-8:30 PM for a film screening about what we lose when we are, “tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.” Stay for a discussion about open access to scholarly research led by Josh Bolick, Scholarly Communications Librarian at KU.

ABOUT THE FILM: The Internet’s Own Boy follows the story of programming prodigy, information activist, and internet celebrity Aaron Swartz, and a two-year legal battle that ended with him taking his own life at the age of 26.

From Swartz’s help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz’s groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a legal nightmare. (Source: takepart.com)
