Movie Night - The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz

Join us for a screening of this film detailing the life of an amazing programmer, Aaron Swartz. Swartz helped create internet protocols like RSS and the social media site Reddit; much of the movie focuses on his information activism and the long legal battle he became entangled with before he took his own life at the age of 26. There will be time for discussion after the film and light refreshments will be provided.
