Aaron Swartz: A Loss to Our Community

Dr. Dobb's editor-in-chief, Andrew Binstock, had a great, short editorial on Aaron Swartz and the disproportionate response of the state of Massachusetts to his crimes.  I encourage everyone to check out the article and take some time to learn more about this exceptional young man.


Aaron was a contributor to RSS, a co-founder of Reddit, and an intense advocate of the rights of an informed democracy to access information.  His death was unfortunate and a real loss to the technology community and supporters of open source and freedom.  If you don't know about Aaron and his life, please take a moment to read up on him and consider some of the ideals he fought for.
