Oh, no. Oh, fuck, no.

Aaron Swartz is dead, apparently by suicide.

To the extent that it is possible for someone half your age to be a hero to you, Aaron was one to me.

Read Doctorow and Lessig for personal notes, and the NYT for the straight news report.

Hope someone is busy archiving his site.

[Added] Also, this (via, via).

[Added2] Glenzilla also considers him a hero.

[Added3] Rick Perlstein has a very good piece up. (h/t: Noam Cohen)
