It's weird how conspiracy theorists always claim people like this are murdered. I guess it reflects their opinion on what's more tragic: a suicide by bullet to the back of the head or a suicide compelled by circumstances created by the institutions which make up the fundaments of our society.

When to capitalize words:
when the word is at the beginning of a sentence
when the word is a proper noun
when the word is a title coming before a name, or a title used in the place of a name
when the word is part of a title (as in book or similar) and not a short word like a, the, and, etc.

It's not weird. Politically inconvenient people committing suicide in jail, or anywhere for that matter, is grounds for scrutiny. That goes double for anyone around the Clintons.

His girlfriend Quinn Norton sold him out to the Federal prosecutor who was pursuing his case. She gave them a critical piece of forgotten writing that Swartz wrote that enabled them to pursue the case against him aggressively. The story is in that free documentary that was made about his life.

Basically, it was that, an aggressive prosecutor looking to make a name for himself, and the fact that Swartz didn't want to be passed around for cigarettes as a fucktoy in prison. He saw no way out, so he became an hero.

He was a jew and you get put to work in prison.
He probably cut out that middleman and offed himself.

It would have happened anyway the moment he stamped a license plate or anything physical like that.

Physical labor killed the jews in WW2, not gas.

You won't go to jail for putting your finger in the trigger. You may go for pointing the gun, not the finger where you shouldn't, but the cop won't even realize where your finger is only that you're waving a gun around yelling about trigger discipline.

Because he is a masochistic dumb kike with depression who thinks he is a super hero but has already been forgotten.

He could have done what Sci-Hub did, but hell no, he has to be a martyr of some sorts because that way alone his name will be put somewhere. That fucking dumb virgin with superiority complex sure showed us.

Cameron Lopez

Aaron had more courage doing what he did and mass-downloading those JSTOR files from a closet at MIT than you'll ever be able to summon up in your entire life.

Let alone his accomplishments are far beyond what you will ever do in your little existence, working with Berners-Lee.

From what I remember from the documentary, he killed himself because he was facing a 500.000 $ and did not want to be a burden...

He's not forgotten.

Aiden Jackson

None of that has ever meant jack shit, and least of all the people who ever thought it did. He rubbed shoulders with great people, but their greatness didn't rub off on him.

That being said, I admire his courage in ridding the world of himself. I wish his admirers would follow his example.

Alexander Ortiz

Didn't he also create the RSS feed?

Elijah Hernandez

nope.
RDF Site Summary, the first version of RSS, was created by Dan Libby and Ramanathan V. Guha at Netscape. It was released in March 1999 for use on the My.Netscape.Com portal.[5]
he did produce a few programs to retrieve RSS feeds, though. rss2email is one I used to use.

Guys, these threads always turn into petty wars and name-calling.
I agree his heart was in the right place, but he wasn't mature enough yet to deal with the consequences.
Regardless, he will be missed.

There is a thin line between courage and idiocy, and Aaron is obviously an idiot.

Downloading and dumping files is a one off thing that doesn't cascade into systemic change. If you want to change the world you do it through ideas, sharing those ideas with others and motivating them to THROUGH GROUP EFFORTS change the world together in some sort of project.

This way you will cascade down the accelerating speed of change and progress, making it unstoppable to any opposition.

Trying to shame me when you don't know me only shows how your fragile ego can't stand me criticisng your idol of worship.

His death was meaningless, and I am not even talking about context of nihilistic existance as a whole.

But you are true on one point, idiots like you latch onto idiot masochistic kikes all the time and worship them like idols they always wanted to be.

Developed the Markdown publishing format, the organization Creative Commons, the website framework web.py, and the social news site Reddit
helped launch the Progressive Change Campaign Committee
founded the online group Demand Progress known for its campaign against the SOPA.
Swartz founded Watchdog.net, to aggregate and visualize data about politicians
Created Deaddrop, now renamed to SecureDrop, a platform for secure communication between journalists including The Guardian, and The Washington Post.
On December 27, 2010, Swartz filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to learn about the treatment of Chelsea Manning
Swartz participated very actively as an editor at the English Wikipedia. He first joined Wikipedia in August 2003. In 2006, he ran unsuccessfully for the Wikimedia Foundation's Board of Trustees.

Holy shit, did this kid have any time to sleep. If you believe this then I have a bridge for sale.

...uh, he participated in a lot of Hipster-approved committees, he actually did fuck-all 'genius' stuff.

His being involved with things Internet at 14 was due to his Software Engineer Dad, Randal Schwartz, who own Coherent Unix.

Miss that part where he helped develop Reddit, one of the most popular websites in the world as of 2017, Reddit had 542 million monthly visitors

Or the RSS part, or how about SecureDrop which is only used by the biggest news companies The Guardian and The Washington Post. Reminder that Snowden dropped his "leak" to the guardian.

Forgot to mention the documentary
"The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz"
Someone actually paid money to make a documentary on this NEET

He was a CIA nigger from the start. His "hacking" of educational journals was just a warning to all you goys not to go against the man, or serve 6 gorillion years in jail.

He, being computer-literate and a defender of your natural right to jerk it to loli catgirls on a GNU operating system in peace, had no choice but to watch the naked grotesque form of Mammon spreading its tendrils throughout the internet, and the horror of accidentally making eye contact with the beast drove him to madness.

Because the Obama administration was in reality a freedom-raping hellscape glossed over with a massive PR budget and fake smiles, culminating at the end of 2016 with niggers twerking in the whitehouse.
As if you even needed reminding how bad things were: half the voting population decided that if they were going to be forced to choose between 4 more years of the same (dangerously comptent evil) and a complete moron who could do nothing but fuck up (only allowed to play as controlled opposition to the regime and set up to lose by state-controlled media at every step), they'd rather have the latter.

Daniel Rodriguez

he was super super genius because he was part of a team of programmers

he was a super super super super genius for having a little input into a Paul Graham-approved version of Usenet... (and left out the killfiles/scorefiles part..)

Seriously, no. There's been thousands of more accomplished younguns on Internets over the past 20-30 years than Schwartz. Bram Cohen was younger than Schwartz (during the Reddit era) when he sole-developed Bittorrent, for example.

he had super sekret laptop hidden in a Uni building drift-leeching filez

Every University had that going back into the 1980s, dude. Mates of mine had a laptop with the hostname "Haven" that did the same thing.
