Today is Aaron Swartz birthday. Because of him, we have Creative Commons (development), Reddit (co-founder),, Open Library, DeadDrop, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Demand Progress (co-founder), ThoughtWorks, and Tor2web.


@arh Does anyone else feel like some of these lyrics apply to Aaron Swartz?

Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events –

No, his mind is not for rent
To any god or government.

-Catch the witness – Catch the wit
-Catch the spirit – Catch the spit

He gets right on to
The friction of the day

Lyrics: Neil Peart and Pye Dubois of Rush
