Amazing Boy

by Abby Zimet

The death of Aaron Swartz is so very very sad, also infuriating. Moving and sometimes angry tributes to his brilliant mind and righteous heart from Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, Lawrence Lessig, Cory Doctorow and many others.

"Aaron was always and only working for (at least his conception of) the public good. He was brilliant, and funny. A kid genius. A soul, a conscience...That person is gone today, driven to the edge by what a decent society would only call bullying. I get wrong. But I also get proportionality. And if you don’t get both, you don’t deserve to have the power of the United States government behind you." - Lessig
