    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 A great mind lost too soon, persecuted by outdated policies and notions.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.

    I was wondering if a tribute was going to be held… I am very pleased to say the least… I’ll be flying home on the 22nd, so i’ll be making my way from Torrance all the way up to SF to make sure I attend this… Wouldn’t miss it for the world!

    I am still speechless. Impressed by the impact of Aaron’s words, his actions and now the impact of his death. He changes us all.

    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.

    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.
