A screening of The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Schwarz followed by an informal discussion hosted by Autonomous Tech Fetish. Mashable called the documentary "a powerful homage to Aaron Swartz". Its debut at Sundance received a standing ovation. "With the help of experts, The Internet's Own Boy makes a clear argument: Swartz unjustly became a victim of the rights and freedoms for which he stood." The Hollywood Reporter described it as a "heartbreaking" story of a "tech wunderkind persecuted by the US government", and a must-see "for anyone who knows enough to care about the way laws govern information transfer in the digital age".
