dc.description.abstractThe short life of hacker Aaron Swartz, who died by suicide on 11 January 2013, has many incredible aspects. A small computer genius who grew up in a Chicago suburb, he met, as a teenager, scholars of the calibre of Tim Berners-Lee and Lawrence Lessig and worked with them to build the computer architectures, and licences, of the future. In a radical change of life, he will then decide to devote himself to political and technological activism; in the meantime, his talented colleagues are taking advantage of the Silicon Valley wave to get rich. Instead, he will devote his energies, and talent, to fight for open access, secure communications, anonymity, and freeing content and culture from the confines, and paywalls, of big databases. At some point, however, the US government will target him and, slowly, the powerful American judicial machine will crush him. His teaching, his theories, his passion are still today, ten years after his death, an example for many users, hackers and citizens of the information society.en_US

oapen.abstract.otherlanguageLa vita troppo breve dell’hacker Aaron Swartz – morto suicida l’11 gennaio del 2013 – ha tantissimi aspetti incredibili. Piccolo genio dell’informatica cresciuto in un sobborgo di Chicago, incontra, da adolescente, studiosi del calibro di Tim Berners-Lee e Lawrence Lessig e lavora con loro per costruire le architetture informatiche, e le licenze d’uso, del futuro. Con un cambio di vita radicale, deciderà poi di dedicarsi all'attivismo politico e tecnologico proprio mentre i suoi coetanei più talentuosi sfruttano l’onda della Silicon Valley per arricchirsi. Lui dedicherà, invece, le sue energie e il suo talento a combattere per l’open access, per la sicurezza delle comunicazioni, per l’anonimato e per “liberare” contenuti e cultura dai confini, e pedaggi, delle grandi banche dati. A un certo punto, però, il governo degli Stati Uniti d’America lo prenderà di mira e, lentamente, la potente macchina giudiziaria americana lo stritolerà. Il suo insegnamento, le sue teorie, la sua passione sono ancora oggi, a distanza di dieci anni dalla sua morte, esempio per tantissimi utenti, hacker e cittadini della società dell’informazione.en_US
