Join us for a film screening of The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz.
When: 7-9 pm, October 25, 2016
Where: CUB 210
What: This film recounts the story of Aaron Swartz, a programming prodigy and information activist who helped develop Reddit, RSS, and Creative Commons. Swartz believed in a free and open Internet, which led to his advocacy against SOPA/PIPA and for open access. His life—which was tragically cut short—raises important questions about the relationship between technology, information access, and our civil liberties.
