Keren Elazari: Hackers: the Internet's immune system - 1 views

  •  
    This 17-minute video puts hackers into some interesting perspectives as Keren Elazari explains why we will need hackers more than we do right now in the era of information. And what I love is that this presentation is executed in an easy and straightforward way for beginners like me to get some new notions, just as any other TEDtalk

The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz : Brian Knappenberger : Free Download... - 7 views

  •  
    The story of Aaron Swartz, incredible programmer and activist for internet rights, open access and open knowledge. Good documentary to learn a little more about the open access movement, see some important figures (Tim Berners-Lee, Lawrence Lessig, etc.) and the fight against the SOPA bill. A big part of the movie is about his personal life and legal battle over copyright infringement. Creative Commons license: Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0)

    I saw it a couple of weeks ago. It is a heart-rending story, very well put together. The issues it raises are very serious, and the cost of losing such a brilliant young genius to the world is immeasurable. It is a wake up call of magnitude. Thanks for posting this link.

    It's such an informative and well-made documentary. After watching it I was so excited to know more about Open Access, which is one of the reasons I attend this online course. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, this documentary can really have an effect, it's heartwarming to hear that the topic of this documentary is one of the reason you took this course! At the end of the movie I was half angry at the unjust prosecution of Swartz and the injustices on the access to knowledge and half uplifted, motivated to get more active on OA, OK and internet rights.

    Although my interest was sparked by great open source projects, like R and PLOS, this documentary was a great inspiration a few weeks ago to relight that flame and join this course. Great to see how Aaron Schwartz still continues to be of inspiration to the open source community. Now and then I also love to go back reading stuff from his blog, e.g. his view on how to be productive (http://www.aaronsw.com/weblog/productivity)

    For the Copyright section I recommend to watch this documentary: The Internet's Own Boy depicts the life of American computer programmer, writer, political organizer and Internet activist Aaron Swartz. It features interviews with his family and friends as well as the internet luminaries who worked with him.
