Gripping and revealing documentary about Aaron Swartz, developer of RSS and Creative Commons and a creator of the current global communications culture; hounded as a security threat by the US federal government, he took his own life. Heartbreaking and horribly revealing, it could have used more material from the prosecuting side, but many declined to contribute.
