Never forget Aaron

The rage over Aaron Swartz’s death continues.  Its time to fry some ambitious politician Prosecutors.

This had led to intelligent discourse on Content and Knowledge, Freedom, and depression.

Please sign this PetitionHere’s Weinberger’s summary of key things said….

Yet it would be a mistake to peg Aaron only as a liberator of information for the public good. He also built services to enable social interactions around information and ideas, because that’s how ideas have effect in the world. Aaron had a deep sense of the Internet as the site of a new culture of ideas, connection and play.

But it would also be a mistake to peg Aaron simply as a champion of social connectedness. He was that, but he was also a hardheaded fighter for justice. He was acutely aware of the advantages conveyed by accidents of birth: country, race, class, gender, sexuality and more. Access to information and to one another were, to Aaron, tools in the struggle to lessen the world’s raw unfairness.
