With Aaron Swartz, open internet has died a death!

It will be extremely hard to forget one of the most talented and extremely passionate personalities that our generation has seen. RIP Aaron Swartz, a person who always fought for an open internet, social justice.

Even though I do not agree with the means Aaron Swartz adopted to fight social injustice – but pressurizing someone who was so brave into committing a suicide is just not acceptable. Shame on DoJ and MIT administration for prosecuting Aaron like a terrorist!

I completely agree with and endorse this WaPo piece that remembers him as an American hero. You will always be remembered, Aaron!

Of course, without even thinking a bit, I’d laud the courage of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange of taking on the US diplomacy. This announcement is where it all started, this time. Definitely not the first time for Wikileaks! Continue reading
