DocumentaryEveryone
Awareness, Activism, Event, Virtual
This documentary depicts the life of Aaron Swartz, an open access, open source, and internet freedom activist and programmer who helped create Creative Commons, Reddit, and the Markdown publishing format. In 2011, he was arrested and charged with multiple felonies for hacking MIT’s JSTOR subscription, which ultimately led to him taking his own life. This film is an accessible way to start discussions about the politics and economies of scholarly publishing. Since the film has a Creative Commons license, there are tons of ways to use it. Consider screening it publicly and facilitating a panel discussion at the end. Encourage individuals to watch it on their own and then participate in an online discussion (via Twitter, Blackboard Collaborate, etc.).
