aaron swartz - people need to know


I don't know if it's productive to speculate about that, but here's a thing that I do wonder about this morning, and that I hope you'll think about, too. I don't know for sure whether Aaron understood that any of us, any of his friends, would have taken a call from him at any hour of the day or night. I don't know if he understood that wherever he was, there were people who cared about him, who admired him, who would get on a plane or a bus or on a video-call and talk to him.                                - Cory Doctorow

every person needs to know. 
perhaps we spend the next 10, 20, 5, 1 year... 
perhaps we spend just one year.. on just that. 
just that.

16 - they felt they were being mocked - and this had to be brought under control
19 - people rose up
