Reddit, Mozilla, rights groups to protest online snooping in memory of Aaron Swartz - http://notjustthenews.com/2014/01/14/whats-current/in-the-world/reddit-mozilla-rights-groups-to-protest-online-snooping-in-memory-of-aaron-swartz/
In Memory of Aaron Swartz: "As we think about what happened to Aaron, we need to recognize that it was not just prosecutorial overreach that killed him. That’s too easy, because that implies it’s one bad apple. We know that’s not true. What killed him was corruption." "[T]hose who are powerless - or especially, as in Swartz's case, those who challenge power - are mercilessly punished for trivial transgressions.” https://seaclearly.com/2013/01/18/in-memory-of-aaron-swartz/
