Sad farewell to an Internet freedom fighter
Placeholder Image
My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Aaron Swartz, who took his own life Friday at age 26. We’ll never know whether the restless Internet wizard and advocate for Internet openness would have beaten the federal rap against him. But the closer you look at the case, the more he looks like a guy who was ahead of his time and couldn’t wait for Congress to catch up.
