Aaron Schwartz documentary "The Internet's Own Boy" available for preorder

The Aaron Schwartz documentary The Internet's Own Boy has been picked up for distribution.

FilmBuff and Participant Media have partnered on a multi-platform release for The Internet’s Own Boy, filmmaker Brian Knappenberger’s (We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists) documentary on the late programming prodigy turned Reddit co-founder and internet activist Aaron Swartz.

Appropriately, many of those release platforms are digital. From Cory Doctorow on BoingBoing:

Starting today, "The Internet's Own Boy," Brian Knappenberger's award-winning, acclaimed documentary about Aaron Swartz, is available as a Creative Commons-licensed (CC-BY-NC-SA) video download. You can stream the movie for $7 from most platforms, and for $10, you can buy it from Vimeo as a shareable, remixable download.

That doesn't seem to be quite accurate; both the movie's homepage and Vimeo list it as becoming available on the 27th.

It's also making a limited theatrical run, including a showing in Vancouver this Saturday. Here's a local review.

And here's the film's homepage, which lists all the services streaming it.

I assume you're all going to go for the DRM-free rental or purchase on Vimeo?
