As part of our series of events for Open Access Week 2016, McMaster Libraries and the OOO Canada Research Network present a free screening of "The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz." The Internet's Own Boy depicts the life of American computer programmer, writer, political organizer and Internet activist Aaron Swartz. The film explores the questions of access to information and civil liberties that drove his work - questions that continue to generate controversy in the scientific community today.
Screening will begin promptly at 6 pm, with coffee/tea/cookies to follow. The LIVELab auditorium is housed on the second floor of the Psychology Building, to your right as you exit the elevator.
