Aaron Swartz — Reddit Founder, RSS Spec Father (at 14) and Activist

Aaron Swartz was the kind of thinker this world needed. And its his kind that the world seems most intent on murdering. Although Swartz will be listed as a suicide, his death was prompted by years of harassment by the State Prosecutor of Massachusetts. I’ll let those who knew him talk about how important Aaron was. I want to note that this was a person who should have been lionized not villified.
