#Humblebrag - This blog got featured in a documentary on Aaron Swartz

 TL;DR - Some code that I wrote got featured in the documentary "The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz".
Some code that I wrote and blogged about in memory of Aaron Swartz in January 2013 got featured in the documentary on Aaron's life "The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz" below. Skip to 5:41 if you're curious.

How do I know its mine? The novice level of the crudely written code is uniquely me. I was supposed to improve upon it later but I never really got around to actually doing it. Meanwhile some people who forked the code from my Github repo did a far better job anyway. This project was more of a tribute than anything else and so it was a humbling experience to have randomly spotted it while watching the documentary again yesterday.
