The Pursuance Project

Aaron Swartz, The Internet’s Own Boy, was driven to suicide by aggressive prosecutorial overreach. Facing decades in custody, this gifted and community-focused programmer took his own life rather than rot away in a prison cell until middle age.

Today, the team behind Aaron Swartz Day brings together guests Jason Leopold, Professor Gabriella Coleman, author and Pursuance founder Barrett Brown, Pursuance tech lead Steven Phillips, and the world’s most famous whistleblower, Chelsea Manning, to discuss Swartz’s legacy, the current state of human rights online, and the future of digital freedoms.
