一個天才會捍衛他眼中的正義至何時?對RSS創造者之一的亞倫.斯沃茨(Aaron Swartz)來說,答案是:至死不渝。2013年1月11日,我們失去了一個天才,卻同時誕生了一位值得詠懷的數位世代勇士。透過閱讀好友鮑勃.史坦(Bob Stein)和各界的紀念文,以及亞倫.斯沃茨自己的文字記錄,我們期許看見自己心中那對資訊自由的正義。

“I've spent much of the past 24 hours reading remembrances of Aaron Swartz as well as a wide selection of his writings.

We've lost an important voice. Not only was he uniquely able to wrap his head around the vast complexity of the emerging digital landscape, Aaron Swartz was generous and brave. He threatened the keepers of the status quo and paid the ultimate price.

Depending on how history turns out, Aaron Swartz may be the first hero of our future age.”

--Bob Stein

過去近24小時,我閱讀了許多緬懷亞倫.斯沃茨的文章,以及亞倫曾寫下的大量文字記錄。
我們失去了一個重要的聲音。亞倫不僅以他獨特的天賦才華,投入逐漸崛起且複雜多端的數位環境,更是一位豪爽勇敢的青年,無畏地挑戰守舊的威權,最後還獻出自己的生命捍衛正義。我們仍在等待歷史給這一切一個答案,不過,亞倫.斯沃茨極可能會成為未來世代裡的第一位英雄。

Aaron Swartz(亞倫.斯沃茨)

Aaron H. Swartz (November 8, 1986 – January 11, 2013) was an American computer programmer, writer, political organizer and Internet activist.

Swartz was a member of the RSS-DEV Working Group that co-authored the "RSS 1.0" specification of RSS, built the website framework web.py and created the architecture for the Open Library. In the early days of Reddit, Swartz's Infogami and Reddit merged; the merger agreement made Swartz an equal partner in the merged company. Swartz also focused on sociology, civic awareness and activism. In 2010 he joined the Harvard University Center for Ethics. He founded the online group Demand Progress (known for its campaign against the Stop Online Piracy Act) and later worked with U.S. and international activist groups Rootstrikers, The Rules and Avaaz.
