My take on this sad bright,young man lost to helping us regain and maintain our future freedom.
This ‘suicide’ could have been carried out in two ways that the mainstream press hasn’t even mentioned. (1) Bullied to Death by the US Government. Commented suicide from being pushed with mind-control methods to the brink by government goons. (2) OR the goons helped him with the task themselves, then staged the scene. . . . EDITOR
We often say, upon the passing of a friend or loved one, that the world is a poorer place for the loss. But with the untimely death of programmer and activist Aaron Swartz, this isn’t just a sentiment; it’s literally true. Worthy, important causes will surface without a champion equal to their measure. Technological problems will go unsolved, or be solved a little less brilliantly than they might have been. And that’s just what we know. The world is robbed of a half-century of all the things we can’t even imagine Aaron would have accomplished with the remainder of his life.
Aaron Swartz committed suicide Friday in New York. [ This has not been proven to everyone’s satisfaction yet. . . THEI EDITOR] He was 26 years old.
When he was 14 years old, Aaron helped develop the RSS standard; he went on to found Infogami, which became part of Reddit. But more than anything Aaron was a coder with a conscience: a tireless and talented hacker who poured his energy into issues like network neutrality, copyright reform and information freedom. Among countless causes, he worked with Larry Lessig at the launch of the Creative Commons, architected the Internet Archive’s free public catalog of books, OpenLibrary.org, and in 2010 founded Demand Progress, a non-profit group that helped drive successful grassroots opposition to SOPA last year. . . .
