As an inventor, a coder, and an activist, Swartz had an outsized impact on the world before he died at the age of 26.

The Internet’s Own Boy, directed by Brian Knappenberger (We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists) represents an effort to bring Swartz’s story to a wider audience, one that is less steeped in the fight for unfettered access to information. A day after the film’s premiere, I met with Swartz’s father, Bob, and his brothers, Noah and Ben.
