Aaron Swartz (1986—2013)

January 13, 2013

There’s a photo of Aaron Swartz from many years ago that is forever etched in my mind. Aaron was just a child then, and he’s sitting with one of my heroes, Lawrence Lessig. Aaron Swartz with Lawrence Lessig I was a university student back then, and working on our little start-up called Vesess. I felt small in front of Aaron. I still do. Aaron Swartz protesting against PIPA In his brief life, Aaron has created, achieved, and shared more than most of us ever will. He was a genius, and a hero of our time. I cannot hope to write better than Tim Berners-Lee:
Aaron is dead.

Wanderers in this crazy world, we have lost a mentor, a wise elder.

Hackers for right, we are one down, we have lost one of our own.

Nurtures, careers, listeners, feeders, parents all, we have lost a child.

Let us all weep.
