A brilliant mind has passed and it’s heartbreaking.
Every Sunday I wake up, grab a cup of coffee and think about what news to write for TorrentFreak. Today was different.
All of a sudden, everything I came up with seemed so trivial.
Two days ago Aaron Swartz took his life. Just like many others I’ve been reading the moving responses from the people that were close to him.
This is not the place to speculate about any of the circumstances that led Aaron to his decision, or what it should mean going forward.
Remember Aaron for all the great work he has done over the years to make and keep information free.
My thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family and friends.
Aaron Swartz (1986 – 2013)
