Today marks the 10th anniversary of the tragic death of Aaron Swartz, "The Internet's Own Boy".
Ten years ago, we had a major loss, a stupid loss.
I wish I'd had time to come up with a nice post about him, to properly mark the day; I didn't, and I'm writing this in a rush. Thankfully, a lot other people have already written and made fantastic works about him. I'm gathering some materials here. If you are not familiar with Aaron's story, please give it a go, it's truly inspiring.
Killswitch: The Battle To Control the Internet (5 dollars) also covers it.
