You should watch The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz. It's free on YouTube and other places:
It's a story about one person, but it's also a story about the evolution of the modern Internet, technology and civil liberties, depression and suicide, and the tension between sharing/creating knowledge and selling access to knowledge. It's an important story of our time.
