Aaron Swartz, Computer Whiz - Suicide at 26Submitted by republicanmother on Sat, 01/12/2013 - 11:50
Aaron Swartz, who co-authored RSS 1.0 at age 14, co-founder of Reddit committed suicide Jan 11. He was under investigation for releasing JSTOR articles that were under a pay wall and was looking at a million in fines and up to 35 years in prison.
As always, the details are scanty. I'm not sure how he killed himself, if he left a note, or whatnot. He did have a depressing blog post a few years ago, but not sure what was going on with him now.
Keeping the golden rule, I would want people to look for more proof and investigate if it is ever reported that I committed suicide. I'll be watching this story.
Whoops! I forgot my link!
