Internet’s sad day…

It is a sad day for progress…a rising star is forever extinguished.

Aaron Swartz was a computer programmer, a writer and a fighter. He co-pioneered the RSS 1.0 specification of RSS at an age when other kids have different interests.

He is responsible for Infogami and also helped make Reddit what it is today. His group Demand Progress was one of the first ones to campaign against SOPA and was also a member of Avaaz. I do not know exactly why he took such a step… but I guess his legacy should bring on the changes he so desired in his lifetime.

Rest well champ, for us toiling hands, you will be remembered forever as the harbinger of progress.

Peace.
