RIP: Aaron Swartz

Think deeply about things. Don’t just go along because that’s the way things are or that’s what your friends say. Consider the effects, consider the alternatives, but most importantly, just think.

— Aaron Swartz

Just remembering Aaron Swartz who died on this day 9 years ago. He was a true activist for digital rights who genuinely cared about everyone’s education. He eventually was bullied and pushed to suicide by JSTOR for downloading too many research papers.
