I stumbled across this documentary about Aaron Swartz, nothing heard of him before but the documentary is well worth a watch on iplayer.

I watched it on BBC4 on Monday night, good watch but I felt it was a little biased towards defending Schwartz, seemed a bit of a troublemaker but on the other hand the US establishment didn't come out of the program smelling of roses.

What an absolute genius the lad was though, at 14 was right in the middle of defining the way the internet works.

I caught up with this last night on iplayer

Aaron Swartz was a hero, a crying shame to lose him at such a young age.

Good call
I watched the other night on catch up & found it quite interesting the lengths they went to make an example of him
He was a super smart kid & sad that they ultimately drove him to suicide Sad
