Trying to concentrate on TEDx but periodically unable due to sadness & anger over death of Aaron Swartz

 

1 of most endearing & empathetic things about Aaron was he was constantly trying to democratize genius. He wanted everyone to be as curious

Aaron would have wanted us to remember that millions face the deep stress of unjust prosecutions.

 

aaron swartz may have made the right choice. life in prison w/rape ought to upset us more, not go unnoticed

First Becky, now Aaron. Let's hold our fierce, change-making friends close, please?

If you think the feds' ridiculous, bloody computer crimes prosecution of @aaronsw was an anomaly, you haven't been paying attention.

 

Hoppe the death of @aaronsw torpedoes Carmen M. Ortiz career. Everywhere she goes she should be reminded of the consequences of her actions

 

@nytjim @aaronsw Furious that bankers go free, yet the US Gov goes after this guy with a vengeance. Way to go, Carmen M. Ortiz!#not

 

FWIW, Carmen Ortiz just runs the US Attorney's office in MA. Stephen Heymann is the Assistant US Attorney going hard after Aaron Swartz.

Deeply saddened by the loss of Aaron Swartz. I was privileged to work w/him on PIPA/SOPA. His advocacy for the greater good will be missed.

Aaron Swartz should have never faced kind of vindictive govt prosecution he suffered. When people like him are targeted, we must speak up
