Tomorrow (10/05/2023) at 8:00 PM CT. We will be watching and discussing (via chat) the following documentary as a cautionary tale so that we can discuss how to be ready for any reaction from those in power.
Documentary: The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014).
Feel free to join us at:
Aaron’s story breaks my heart. i shall endeavor to attend.
I have never heard of him. His story seemed sad and those computer acess laws are tyrannical.
I would be remiss if I didn’t voice my contempt for Reddit. I am not sure how he felt? I would not have stayed on that team given there direction. I really confused at how others find it pleasing to sort through dogma and a stunning lack of diversity of thought for a bit of data found more easily elsewhere. That place is full of sadness as far as I can see.
