This young man just killed himself, & he’s worth knowing about.

Update, via Reddit, which he co-founded/or worked on in the early years and was a part of its sale to Conde Nast. This link also includes a link to a discussion on Reddit, and a letter from his family.

Update: Shame on you, FBI.

This happened.

I just spent the morning reading this. “How to Get a Job Like Mine.”

Then reading this. “RIP, Aaron Swartz,” by Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing. It’s free to share, but I think it’s best we reward Cory for his thoughtfulness by reading it on his site.

Then watching this. “How we Stopped SOPA.”

And I’m better for it, more inspired, saddened, and grateful for all he’s done.
