Aaron Swartz. I believe this guy could have used his incredible curiosity, phenomenal intellect, and mega-capability for the good of all of us.

Jeesh I love a documentary. And the other night I found one that totally captivated me. It’s called The Internet’s Own Boy. And it’s the story of Aaron Swartz, a brilliant, prodigy, activist who is arrested for essentially downloading too many Journals online and faces like a billion charges and loads of jail time. It happened right here in Boston, apparently while I was in a some sort of coma , because I don’t remembered a thing about it. It’s an important story. And a terribly tragic one. I give it four stars, and yet, I wish it was never made. Watch it and you’ll understand why.
