  1. I am so sad and angry. Our justice system has become so perverse.

  2. Amitrajit says:

    Never knew the man personally, only his work. A great mind lost too soon, persecuted by outdated policies and notions. Hopefully this will be the tipping point.

  3. Asubabu says:

    Realy will be a great thankful story.

  4. Quick Silver says:

    You will be greatly missed! This we must Defend!

    I watched the memorial and heard
    Dr. Carl Malamud’s speech…i printed it out. I’m just one of the little guys
    but even i know that something important happened to the world when Aaron
    Scwartz died. I hope that all you talented, educated and smart people know
    that you can change the world forever and that we want to help too.

  18. I wish I could have been at the Archive tonight, to remember Aaron. We use RSS each second of the day, it is a key part of the Internet. Bulk downloading is not a crime.
